Trees :

The Trees like Tassels hit - and - swung
There seemed to rise a Tune
From Miniature Creatures
Accompanying the Sun -

Far Psalteries of Summer -
Enamoring the Ear
They never yet did satisfy -
Remotest - when most fair
The Sun shone whole at intervals -
Then Half - then utter hid -
As if Himself were optional
And had Estates of Cloud

Sufficient to enfold Him
Eternally from view -
Except it were a whim of His
To let the Orchards grow -

A Bird sat careless on the fence -
One gossiped in the Lane
On silver matters charmed a Snake
Just winding round a Stone -

Bright Flowers slit a Calyx
And soared upon a Stem
Like Hindered Flags - Sweet hoisted
With Spices - in the Hem -

Twas more - I cannot mention -
How mean - to those that see
Vandyke’s Delineation
Of Nature’s - Summer Day!

By Emily Dickinson
