Emily Dickinson 



[1858]


I should die — 
And you should live —
And time sh’d gurgle on —
And morn sh’d beam — 
And noon should burn — 
As it has usual done — 
If Birds should build as early
And Bees as bustling go —
One might depart at option
From enterprise below!
‘Tis sweet to know that stocks will stand
When we with Daisies lie — 
That Commerce will continue,
And Trades as briskly fly — 
It makes the parting tranquil
And keeps the soul serene — 
That gentlemen so sprightly
Conduct the pleasing scene!
