We Should Not Mind So Small A Flower


We should not mind so small a flower—
Except it quiet bring
Our little garden that we lost
Back to the Lawn again.

So spicy her Carnations nod—
So drunken, reel her Bees—
So silver steal a hundred flutes
From out a hundred trees—

That whoso sees this little flower
By faith may clear behold
The Bobolinks around the throne
And Dandelions gold.

by Emily Dickinson

Lovely love poem, well articulated and nicely penned. A beautiful woman who was an oasis of comfort well depicted in the poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
