Emily Dickinson

Dec. 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886


New feet within my garden go...

by Emily Dickinson

New feet within my garden go,
New fingers stir the sod;
A troubadour upon the elm
Betrays the solitude.

New children play upon the green,
New weary sleep below;
And still the pensive spring returns,
And still the punctual snow!
