A Murmur in the Trees— to note

by Emily Dickinson

A Murmur in the Trees — to note —
Not loud enough — for Wind —
A Star — not far enough to seek —
Nor near enough — to find –A long — long Yellow — on the Lawn —
A Hubbub — as of feet —
Not audible — as Ours — to Us —
But dapperer — More Sweet –A Hurrying Home of little Men
To Houses unperceived —
All this — and more — if I should tell —
Would never be believed –Of Robins in the Trundle bed
How many I espy
Whose Nightgowns could not hide the Wings —
Although I heard them try —

But then I promised ne’er to tell —
How could I break My Word?
So go your Way — and I’ll go Mine —
No fear you’ll miss the Road.
