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

Part Two: Nature

LXXXIII


THE SPRINGTIME’S pallid landscape
  Will glow like bright bouquet,
Though drifted deep in parian
  The village lies to-day.
  
The lilacs, bending many a year,        5
  With purple load will hang;
The bees will not forget the time
  Their old forefathers sang.
  
The rose will redden in the bog,
  The aster on the hill        10
Her everlasting fashion set,
  And covenant gentians frill,
  
Till summer folds her miracle
  As women do their gown,
Or priests adjust the symbols        15
  When sacrament is done.
