Flowers—Well—if anybody

4457658Flowers—Well—if anybodyEmily Dickinson

Flowers—well, if anybody
   Can the ecstacy define,
Half a transport, half a trouble,
   With which flowers humble men—
Anybody find the fountain,
   From which floods so contra flow,
I will give him all the Daisies,
   Which upon the hill-side blow !

Too much pathos in their faces,
   For a simple breast like mine !
Butterflies from San Domingo,
   Cruising round the purple line,
Have a system of esthetics
   Far superior to mine !
