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

Part Three: Love

X


AS if some little Arctic flower,
Upon the polar hem,
Went wandering down the latitudes,
Until it puzzled came
To continents of summer,        5
To firmaments of sun,
To strange, bright crowds of flowers,
And birds of foreign tongue!
I say, as if this little flower
To Eden wandered in—        10
What then? Why, nothing, only
Your inference therefrom!
