Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B66a
Dear  Sue -
	The  Supper 
was  delicate 
and  strange -  
I  ate  it  with 
as  I  would 
eat  a  Vision -  
The  Blossoms 
only  were  too 
hearty -  those 
I  saved  for 
the  Birds - 
How  tenderly 
I  thank  you -  

H B66b

I  often  hope 
you  are  better -
Beneath  the 
Alps   the 
Danube  runs -
	[signature excised]

H B66
