A Drop Fell On The Apple Tree Poem by Emily Dickinson

A Drop Fell On The Apple Tree

Rating: 3.0


A drop fell on the apple tree
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh.

A few went out to help the brook,
That went to help the sea.
Myself conjectured, Were they pearls,
What necklaces could be!

The dust replaced in hoisted roa
The birds jocoser sung;
The sunshine threw his hat away,
The orchards spangles hung.

The breezes brought dejected
And bathed them in the glee;
The East put out a single flag,
And signed the fete away.

Marvelously entertaining and very proactive, in terms of her 'twist of fate' of the poem's theme, in the last few lines.

A Drop Fell On The Apple Tree I have enjoyed watching the rain pearls along the clothes-line for so many times when it rains....rain drops are not pearls in Emily's words..but diamonds..superb-10 (Repor
