Emily Dickinson - Perhaps I asked too large

Perhaps I asked too large --
I take -- no less than skies --
For Earths, grow thick as
Berries, in my native town --

My Basked holds -- just -- Firmaments --
Those -- dangle easy -- on my arm,
But smaller bundles -- Cram.

My own world is so big, my desires so capacious, that anything small just will not cut it.
