Emily Dickinson, 654

 
Moaiens - makkest net - Sy is -
Giet, wolst har as Proai ha -
Bliuwt, ast har gewurde litst -

Fangsto hast de Ploaien

Yn de Greide - as de Wyn
Dêr mei fingers trochgiet -
Wit dan dat de Godlikheid
Dy dat noait net tastiet -

 

Beauty - be not caused - It is -
Chase it, and it ceases -
Chase it not, and it abides -

Overtake the Creases

In the Meadow - when the Wind
Runs his fingers thro’ it -
Deity will see to it
That you never do it -

 

F654 (J516). Ofbylding: Houghton Library, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA. YouTube: Alice Parker, ‘Beauty, Be Not Caused, It Is’, fan it album Heavenly Hurt (2017), útfierd troch de Melodious Accord Musicians.
