Perhaps You’d Like to Buy a Flower?
Emily Dickinson (10th December, 1830 – 15th May, 1886)

Perhaps you’d like to buy a flower? 
But I could never sell.
If you would like to borrow
Until the daffodil

Unties her yellow bonnet
Beneath the village door,
Until the bees, from clover rows
Their hock and sherry draw,

Why, I will lend until just then,
But not an hour more!
