If Bees Are Few . . .

I ran across this poem from Emily Dickinson recently and wanted to post it here.  I don’t want to ruin it either with too much analysis, so I’m opting for no analysis at all, and just letting it stand alone. Enjoy!

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,

One clover, and a bee.

And revery.

The revery alone will do,

If bees are few.
