Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B195
The Bumble of a Bee -
A Witchcraft, yieldeth me.
If any ask me "Why - " 
  'Twere easier to die
   Than tell!

The Red upon the Hill
Taketh away my will -
If Anybody sneer,
  Take care, for God is near -
  That's All!

The Breaking of the Day -
Addeth to my Degree -
If any ask me "how" -
Artist who drew me so -
  Must tell!
	Emily '
