Karen Edmisten writes about Emily Dickinson today for poetry Friday and I felt inspired to put up one of Emily’s poems myself.
I learned this one because it’s printed on a candle that I found in the guest bathroom of my parents’ house. It’s been rattling around in my head since we were visiting in January and it’s about time I let it out to play.
TO make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,�
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do
If bees are few.
