Poem by Emily Elizabeth Dickinson


* * *


To venerate the simple days
Which lead the seasons by,
Needs but to remember
That from you or I,
They may take the trifle
Termed mortality!

To invest existence with a stately air
Needs but to remember
That the acorn there
Is the egg of forests
For the upper air!



Emily Elizabeth Dickinson
