Emily Dickinson - The Bat is dun, with wrinkled Wings --

The Bat is dun, with wrinkled Wings --
Like fallow Article --
And not a song pervade his Lips --
Or none perceptible.

His small Umbrella quaintly halved
Describing in the Air
An Arc alike inscrutable
Elate Philosopher.

Deputed from what Firmament --
Of what Astute Abode --
Empowered with what Malignity
Auspiciously withheld --

To his adroit Creator
Acribe no less the praise --
Beneficent, believe me,
His Eccentricities --

The Bat of Emily:

O, Astutest Emily,
See the Bat in you and me;
In firmament echo his song,
And let the distance near or long,
I perceive it in my heart
Half of it dun in your art;
The other half to elate
Shelter in the umbrellaís fate;
And to our bold scrutiny
Lips of the bat sing secrecy;
As you and me and the bat fly
Adroitly praise him in his sky,
Never doubt in you and me,
I believe you Emily.
