Of Brussels-it was not

by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson


Of Brussels-it was not-
Of Kidderminster? Nay-
The Winds did buy it of the Woods-
They-sold it unto me

It was a gentle price-
The poorest-could afford-
It was within the frugal purse
Of Beggar-or of Bird-

Of small and spicy Yards-
In hue-a mellow Dun-
Of Sunshine-and of Sere-Composed-
But, principally-of Sun-

The Wind-unrolled it fast-
And spread it on the Ground-
Upholsterer of the Pines-is He-
Upholsterer-of the Pond-
