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

Part Two: Nature

LV


PERHAPS you’d like to buy a flower?
But I could never sell.
If you would like to borrow
Until the daffodil
  
Unties her yellow bonnet        5
Beneath the village door,
Until the bees, from clover rows
Their hock and sherry draw,
  
Why, I will lend until just then,
But not an hour more!        10
