Emily Dickinson, 983

 
Bij! Ik ferwachtsje dy!
Sei Ik noch Juster net
Tsjin Ien dy’tsto wol kenst
Wat is er let?

De Kikkerts bin’ in Wike al
Op honk en yn it spier -
De measte Fûgels ek -
De Klaver waarm en tier -

Krijst foar de Santjinde
Myn Brief; doch my Bericht
Of leaver, wês by my -
Leafs, Mich.

 

Bee! I’m expecting you!
Was saying Yesterday
To Somebody you know
That you were due -

The Frogs got Home last Week -
Are settled, and at work -
Birds mostly back -
The Clover warm and thick -

You’ll get my Letter by
The Seventeenth; Reply
Or better, be with me -
Your’s, Fly.
