Dickinson, Emily: Before the ice is in the pools

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

Before the ice is in the pools (English)

Before the ice is in the pools,
   Before the skaters go,
Or any cheek at nightfall
   Is tarnished by the snow,

Before the fields have finished,
   Before the Christmas tree,
Wonder upon wonder
   Will arrive to me!

What we touch the hems of
   On a summer's day;
What is only walking
   Just a bridge away;

That which sings so, speaks so,
   When there's no one here,—
Will the frock I wept in
   Answer me to wear?
