Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 345a
The murmuring of 
Bees, has ceased
But murmuring of 
Posterior, prophetic,
Has simultaneous come.
The lower metres 
of the Year
When Nature's laugh 
is done
The Revelations of 
the Book
Whose Genesis was June.
H 345b

Appropriate Creatures 
to her Change
The Typic Mother 
As Accent fades 
to interval
With separating 
Till what we 
speculate, has been
And thoughts we 
will not show '
More intimate with 
us become
H 345c

Than Persons, 
that we know.
