Like Some Old fashioned Miracle When Summertime is done -- Seems Summer's Recollection And the Affairs of June As infinite Tradition As Cinderella's Bays -- Or Little John -- of Lincoln Green -- Or Blue Beard's Galleries -- Her Bees have a fictitious Hum -- Her Blossoms, like a Dream -- Elate us -- till we almost weep -- So plausible -- they seem -- Her Memories like Strains -- Review -- When Orchestra is dumb -- The Violin in Baize replaced -- And Ear -- and Heaven -- numb -- (Emily Dickinson)
