A single Clover Plank by Emily Dickinson
1343

A single Clover Plank
Was all that saved a Bee
A Bee I personally knew
From sinking in the sky —

'Twixt Firmament above
And Firmament below
The Billows of Circumference
Were sweeping him away —

The idly swaying Plank
Responsible to nought
A sudden Freight of Wind assumed
And Bumble Bee was not —

This harrowing event
Transpiring in the Grass
Did not so much as wring from him
A wandering "Alas" —
