Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 237
A Sparrow took  
a Slice of Twig 
And thought it  
very nice 
I think, because  
his empty Plate 
Was handed  
Nature twice - 

Invigorated, waded 
In all the  
deepest Sky 
Until his little  
Was forfeited  
away ' 
	Emily '
