Emily Dickinson


Two Butterflies went out at Noon”
And waltzed upon a Farm”
Then stepped straight through the Firmament
And rested on a Beam”

And then”together bore away
Upon a shining Sea”
Though never yet, in any Port”
Their coming mentioned”be”

If spoken by the distant Bird”
If met in Ether Sea
By Frigate, or by Merchantman”
No notice”was”to me”
