Twould ease—a Butterfly

682

'Twould ease-a Butterfly-
Elate-a Bee-
Thou'rt neither-
Neither-thy capacity-

But, Blossom, were I,
I would rather be
Thy moment
Than a Bee's Eternity-

Content of fading
Is enough for me-
Fade I unto Divinity-

And Dying-Lifetime-
Ample as the Eye-
Her least attention raise on me-
