by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

Summer for thee grant I may be
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
Summer for thee grant I may be
  When summer days are flown!
Thy music still when whippoorwill
  And oriole are done!

For thee to bloom, I'll skip the tomb
  And sow my blossoms o'er!
Pray gather me, Anemone,
  Thy flower forevermore!
