How fits his Umber Coat

How fits his Umber Coat
The Tailor of the Nut?
Combined without a seam
Like Raiment of a Dream -
 
Who spun the Auburn Cloth?
Computed how the girth?
The Chestnut aged grows
In those primeval Clothes -
 
We know that we are wise -
Accomplished in Surprise -
Yet by this Countryman -
This nature -  how undone!
Other works by Emily Dickinson ...
