Nature Rarer Uses Yellow

Poem by Emily Dickinson

Nature rarer uses yellow
Than another hue;
Saves she all of that for sunsets,--
Prodigal of blue,

Spending scarlet like a woman,
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly,
Like a lover's words.

    Nature rarer uses yellow
    Than another hue;
    Saves she all of that for sunsets, -
    Prodigal of blue,

    Spending scarlet like a woman,
    Yellow she affords
    Only scantly and selectly,
    Like a lover's words.
