Sweet is the swamp with its secrets

Written by: Emily Dickinson | Biography
 | Quotes (91) |
 Sweet is the swamp with its secrets,
Until we meet a snake;
'Tis then we sigh for houses,
And our departure take

At that enthralling gallop
That only childhood knows.
A snake is summer's treason, And guile is where it goes.
