It’s all I have to bring today


It’s all I have to bring today –
This, and my heart beside –
This, and my heart, and all the fields –
And all the meadows wide –
Be sure you count – should I forget
Some one the sum could tell –
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

by Emily Dickinson

Have you read Afternoons With Emily by Rose MacMurray? If you love Emily, you will love that book.

I'm borrowing/stealing your post idea for my postless blog today. I'll put it with a picture. ;-) What a perfect poem...
