Emily Dickinson - A little Road -- not made of Man --

A little Road -- not made of Man --
Enabled of the Eye --
Accessible to Thill of Bee --
Or Cart of Butterfly --

If Town it have -- beyond itself --
'Tis that -- I cannot say --
I only know -- no Curricle that rumble there
Bear Me --

Like many of Dickison's poems, # 647 is a riddle-poem. The road on which bees and butterflies travel is, of course, a breeze. A system of transportation "not made of Man." The Town which may or may not appear at the end of this road may exist in the realm of Imagination--as so much did for Dickinson.
