letters from dickinson to unknown recipients

about 1875

A Bee his burnished Carriage
Drove boldly to a Rose -
Combinedly alighting -
Himself - his Carriage was-
The Rose received his visit
With frank tranquility
Withholding not a Crescent
To his Cupidity -
Their Moment consummated-
Remained for him - to flee -
Remained for her - of rapture
But the humility.
