Three Things – Rain

A Drop Fell On The Apple Tree

By Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

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 roa

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.

 

apple blossoms in the rain | Apple tree blossoms, Apple blossom, Apple tree

Comment and send me your Three Things and I will find a poem and a picture and publish them for you!
