by Emily Dickinson

She went as quiet as the dewt
From a familiar flower.t
Not like the dew did she returnt
At the accustomed hour!t

She dropt as softly as a star
From out my summer’s eve;t
Less skillful than Leverriert
It’s sorer to believe!t

Songs from Emily Dickinson

Composer(s): Ernst Bacon

Song(s): As If the Sea Should Part
Let down the bars
O friend
The grass so little has to do
A threadless way
The postponeless Creature
I'm Nobody
My river runs to thee
How still the bells
The sun went down
The grass so little has to do
She went as quiet as the dew
Wild nights
