poems sent from dickinson to elizabeth holland

To Elizabeth Holland
From ED

Forever honored be the Tree
Whose Apple Winterworn
Enticed to Breakfast from the Sky
Two Gabriels Yestermorn.

They registered in Nature's Book
As Robins - Sire and Son -
But Angels have that modest way
To screen them from Renown.
