Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

A Pang is more conspicuous in Spring

A Pang is more conspicuous in Spring
In contrast with the things that sing
Not Birds entirely - but Minds -
Minute Effulgencies and Winds -
When what they sung for is undone
Who cares about a Blue Bird's Tune -
Why, Resurrection had to wait
Till they had moved a Stone -
