Emily Dickinson 



[1858]


Frequently the woods are pink–
Frequently are brown– 
Frequently the hills undress
Behind my native town–
Oft a head is crested
I was wont to see–
And as oft a cranny
Where it used to be–
And the Earth–they tell me,
On its axis turned!
Wonderful rotation–
By but twelve performed!
