To Make A Prairie (1755)

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee.
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.

by Emily Dickinson

Some people connect the clover to prosperity and the bee to sweet times.
wonderful poem.. so short, so deep.. EXCELSIOR! :)
E' una poesia fantastica!
Labor alone and the work is drudgery; labor with others, and they help bear the burden.
A short poem that tells of the simple yet most neglected secret to happiness - the power of the mind; -)
