Emily Dickinson, 1482

 
Ferbeane Fruchten hawwe in geur
Dy’t tastien Fruit bespot -
Hoe ynswiet slommet yn de Pûl
De Eart, troch Plicht op slot -

 

Forbidden Fruit a flavor has
That lawful Orchards mocks -
How luscious lies within the Pod
The Pea that Duty locks -

 

F1482 (J1377). Ofbylding: Amherst College Library, Emily Dickinson Collection, 187.
