Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

A feather from the Whippoorwill


161

A feather from the Whippoorwill
That everlasting—sings!
Whose galleries—are Sunrise—
Whose Opera—the Springs—
Whose Emerald Nest the Ages spin
Of mellow—murmuring thread—
Whose Beryl Egg, what Schoolboys hunt
In "Recess"—Overhead!
