Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 255
Frequently the woods are pink` 
Frequently are brown. 
Frequently the hills undress 
Behind my native town.	 
Oft a head is crested 
I was wont to see` 
And as oft a cranny 
Where it used to be` 
And the Earth  they tell me - 
On it's Axis turned! 
Wonderful Rotation! 
By but Twelve performed!
