Emily Dickinson´s

To hear an oriole sing
May be a common thing,
Or only a divine.

It is not of the bird
Who sings the same, unheard,
As unto crowd.

The fashion of the ear
Attireth that it hear
In dun* or fair.

So whether it be rune,**
Or whether it be none,
Is of within;

The “tune is in the tree,”
The sceptic showeth me;
“No, sir! In thee!”


*Marked by dullness and drabness.
**Mystical poem or incantation.
