You said that I "was Great" — one Day — by Emily Dickinson
738

You said that I "was Great" — one Day —
Then "Great" it be — if that please Thee —
Or Small — or any size at all —
Nay — I'm the size suit Thee —

Tall — like the Stag — would that?
Or lower — like the Wren —
Or other heights of Other Ones
I've seen?

Tell which — it's dull to guess —
And I must be Rhinoceros
Or Mouse —
At once — for Thee —

So say — if Queen it be —
Or Page — please Thee —
I'm that — or nought —
Or other thing — if other thing there be —
With just this Stipulus —
I suit Thee —
