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

Part Two: Nature

LXXX


THE SKY is low, the clouds are mean,
A travelling flake of snow
Across a barn or through a rut
Debates if it will go.
  
A narrow wind complains all day        5
How some one treated him;
Nature, like us, is sometimes caught
Without her diadem.
