Emily Dickinson - Flowers -- Well -- if anybody

Flowers -- Well -- if anybody
Can the ecstasy define --
Half a transport -- half a trouble --
With which flowers humble men:
Anybody find the fountain
From which floods so contra flow --
I will give him all the Daisies
Which upon the hillside blow.

Too much pathos in their faces
For a simple breast like mine --
Butterflies from St. Domingo
Cruising round the purple line --
Have a system of aesthetics --
Far superior to mine.

dickinson is quite correct when asking " can the ecstasy define" ecsatasy can be quantified but too difficult to define therein lies the magic of emotions
