Poetry Friday: As if some little Arctic flower by Emily Dickinson

January 8th, 2010 (08:05 am)

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: Edge of the Ocean by Ivy

As if some little Arctic flower,
Upon the polar hem,
Went wandering down the latitudes,
Until it puzzled came
To continents of summer,
To firmaments of sun,
To strange, bright crowds of flowers,
And birds of foreign tongue!
I say, as if this little flower
To Eden wandered in-
What then? Why, nothing, only
Your inference therefrom!
- Emily Dickinson

This makes me think of spring, even though I'm rather enjoying our California winter... :)
