letters from dickinson to the jenkins family

To Sally Jenkins
From ED

about August 1881

"Little Women -"

Which shall it be, Geranium or Juleps?

The Butterfly upon the Sky
That does'nt know it's Name
And has'nt any tax to pay
And has'nt any Home
Is just as high as you and I,
And higher, I believe,
So soar away and never sigh
And that's the way to grieve -
