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

Part Two: Nature

LIV


THE MURMUR of a bee
A witchcraft yieldeth me.
If any ask me why,
’T were easier to die
Than tell.        5
  
The red upon the hill
Taketh away my will;
If anybody sneer,
Take care, for God is here,
That ’s all.        10
  
The breaking of the day
Addeth to my degree;
If any ask me how,
Artist, who drew me so,
Must tell!        15
