Poem of the month: Before you thought of Spring

March 8, 2009 at 9:48 pm 1 comment

Before you thought of Spring
Except as a Surmise
You see – God bless his suddenness –
A Fellow in the Skies
Of independent Hues
A little weather worn
Inspiriting habiliments
Of Indigo and Brown –
With specimens of Song
As if for you to choose –
Discretion in the interval
With gay delays he goes
To some superior Tree
Without a single Leaf
And shouts for joy to Nobody
But his seraphic self –

Emily Dickinson

    Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful poem. Though a fan of Dickinson, I read it on your site for the first time. Poem of the Month is one of my favorite features of MyMinnesotaWoods.
