It’s all I have to bring today

by Emily Dickinson

It’s all I have to bring today–

This, and my heart beside–

This, and my heart, and all the fields–

And all the meadows wide–

Be sure you count–should I forget

Some one the sum could tell–

This, and my heart, and all the Bees

Which in the Clover dwell.
