Emily Dickinson

What Shall I Do When The Summer Troubles

poem 956

What shall I do when the Summer troubles What, when the Rose is ripe What when the Eggs fly off in Music From the Maple Keep? What shall I do when the Skies a’chirrup Drop a Tune on me When the Bee hangs all Noon in the Buttercup What will become of me? Oh, when the Squirrel fills His Pockets And the Berries stare How can I bear their jocund Faces Thou from Here, so far? ‘Twouldn’t afflict a Robin All His Goods have Wings I do not fly, so wherefore My Perennial Things?
