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

Part Three: Love

XXXIX


WHEN roses cease to bloom, dear,
  And violets are done,
When bumble-bees in solemn flight
  Have passed beyond the sun,
  
The hand that paused to gather        5
  Upon this summer’s day
Will idle lie, in Auburn,—
  Then take my flower, pray!
