Emily Dickinson 



[1858]


To lose — if One can find again —
To miss — if One shall meet —
The Burglar cannot rob — then —
The Broker cannot cheat.
So build the hillocks gaily — 
Thou little spade of mine
Leaving nooks for Daisy
And for Columbine — 
You and I the secret
Of the Crocus know —
Let us chant it softly —
There is no more snow!”
