Emily Dickinson - I'm saying every day

I'm saying every day
"If I should be a Queen, tomorrow" --
I'd do this way --
And so I deck, a little,

If it be, I wake a Bourbon,
None on me, bend supercilious --
With "This was she --
Begged in the Market place --
Yesterday."

Court is a stately place --
I've heard men say --
So I loop my apron, against the Majesty
With bright Pins of Buttercup --
That not too plain --
Rank -- overtake me --

And perch my Tongue
On Twigs of singing -- rather high --
But this, might be my brief Term
To qualify --

Put from my simple speech all plain word --
Take other accents, as such I heard
Though but for the Cricket -- just,
And but for the Bee --
Not in all the Meadow --
One accost me --

Better to be ready --
Than did next morn
Meet me in Aragon --
My old Gown -- on --

And the surprised Air
Rustics -- wear --
Summoned -- unexpectedly --
To Exeter --
