Emily Dickinson - Upon his Saddle sprung a Bird

Upon his Saddle sprung a Bird
And crossed a thousand Trees
Before a Fence without a Fare
His Fantasy did please
And then he lifted up his Throat
And squandered such a Note
A Universe that overheard
Is stricken by it yet --

The Bird of Emily:
Were I your bird my Emily,
My wings your song will carry,
Our fetched mirth never tarry,
And the horse would trot freely.
The trees would bend for you and me,
And the fence would dance to the glee,
As throats squander the fantasy,
And universe revels in our verse.
Alas, my sister Emily,
Iím done in the humanity.
