Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Two: Nature

VI


THE ROBIN is the one
That interrupts the morn
With hurried, few, express reports
When March is scarcely on.
  
The robin is the one        5
That overflows the noon
With her cherubic quantity,
An April but begun.
  
The robin is the one
That speechless from her nest        10
Submits that home and certainty
And sanctity are best.
