Emily Dickinson, 786

 
Sei de Hjerst - myn Breidzjen keurend -
In Flamingo sels ferblikt
Nêst de Ferven dy’t Ik meibring -
Lit My sjen - sei Ik -

Konsenylje - keas Ik - mienend
Dat it passe sil by Dy -
Foar it Kraachje - mear in Skaadkleur -
Want dat past by My -

 

Autumn - overlooked my Knitting -
Dyes - said He - have I -
Could disparage a Flamingo -
Show Me them - said I -

Cochineal - I chose - for deeming
It resemble Thee -
And the little Border - Dusker -
For resembling Me -

 

F786 (J748). Ofbylding: Houghton Library, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
