Emily Dickinson, 76

 
Nea sizze reinbôchkleuren -
It needwaar is foarby -
Dochs binne sy oertsjûgjender
As Riddenearderij.

Myn blommen mije Foarums -
Ferklearje dochs mei swier
Wat Cato net bewize koe
Wie ’t sûnder fûgels hjir!

 

The rainbow never tells me
That gust and storm are by -
Yet is she more convincing
Than Philosophy.

My flowers turn from Forums -
Yet eloquent declare
What Cato could’nt prove me
Except the birds were here!

 

F76 (J97). Ofbylding: Houghton Library, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
