“Sown in dishonor”!
May this “dishonor” be?
If I were half so fine myself
I fear a Man of frugal Speech—
I fear a Silent Man—
Haranguer—I can overtake—

To forfeit Thee? The very name
Is sentence from Belief’—and Hous…
It’s like the light,—
A fashionless delight
It’s like the bee,—
A dateless melody.
It’s like the woods,
Two butterflies went out at noon
And waltzed above a stream,
Then stepped straight through the…
And rested on a beam;
And then together bore away
The heart asks pleasure first
And then, excuse from pain–
And then, those little anodynes
That deaden suffering;
And then, to go to sleep;
