Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Two: Nature

LXVIII


AS children bid the guest good-night,
And then reluctant turn,
My flowers raise their pretty lips,
Then put their nightgowns on.
  
As children caper when they wake,        5
Merry that it is morn,
My flowers from a hundred cribs
Will peep, and prance again.
