A Drop Fell on the Apple Tree by Emily Dickinson

A drop fell on the apple tree
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh.

A few went out to help the brook,
That went to help the sea.
Myself conjectured, Were they pearls,
What necklaces could be!

The dust replaced in hoisted roads
The birds jocoser sung;
The sunshine threw his hat away,
The orchards spangles hung.

The breezes brought dejected
And bathed them in the glee;
The East put out a single flag,
And signed the fete away.

  1. I do love Emily Dickinson. Since she wrote over 3500 poems, I am always discovering new ones, and they are always a treat. From time to time I try to imitate the style of famous poets, and there are some I am pretty good at — lol. But I can’t imitate Emily. She is truly unique, with a voice that still resonates. Thank you for posting this.
