by Emily Dickinson

I robbed the Woods

 I robbed the Woods --
The trusting Woods.
The unsuspecting Trees Brought out their Burs and mosses My fantasy to please.
I scanned their trinkets curious -- I grasped -- I bore away -- What will the solemn Hemlock -- What will the Oak tree say?


by Vachel Lindsay

Ghosts in Love

 "Tell me, where do ghosts in love 
Find their bridal veils?" 

"If you and I were ghosts in love 
We'd climb the cliffs of Mystery, 
Above the sea of Wails.
I'd trim your gray and streaming hair With veils of Fantasy From the tree of Memory.
'Tis there the ghosts that fall in love Find their bridal veils.
"


by Emily Dickinson

Upon his Saddle sprung a Bird

 Upon his Saddle sprung a Bird
And crossed a thousand Trees
Before a Fence without a Fare
His Fantasy did please
And then he lifted up his Throat
And squandered such a Note
A Universe that overheard
Is stricken by it yet --
