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

Part Two: Nature

LXX


SO bashful when I spied her,
So pretty, so ashamed!
So hidden in her leaflets,
Lest anybody find;
  
So breathless till I passed her,        5
So helpless when I turned
And bore her, struggling, blushing,
Her simple haunts beyond!
  
For whom I robbed the dingle,
For whom betrayed the dell,        10
Many will doubtless ask me,
But I shall never tell!
