Dickinson, Emily: As children bid the guest good-night, 133

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

As children bid the guest good-night, 133 (English)

As children bid the guest good-night,
And then reluctant turn,
My flowers raise their pretty lips,
Then put their nightgowns on.

As children caper when they wake,
Merry that it is morn,
My flowers from a hundred cribs
Will peep, and prance again.
