Bee! I'm Expecting You!
by Emily Dickinson


Bee! I'm expecting you!
Was saying Yesterday
To Somebody you know
That you were due --


The Frogs got Home last Week --
Are settled, and at work --
Birds, mostly back --
The Clover warm and thick --


You'll get my Letter by
The seventeenth; Reply
Or better, be with me --
Yours, Fly.
