If You Were Coming In The Fall

If you were coming in the fall,
I'd brush the summer by
With half a smile and half a spurn,
As housewives do a fly.

If I could see you in a year,
I'd wind the months in balls,
And put them each in separate drawers,
Until their time befalls.

If only centuries delayed,
I'd count them on my hand,
Subtracting till my fingers dropped
Into Van Diemen's land.

If certain, when this life was out,
That yours and mine should be,
I'd toss it yonder like a rind,
And taste eternity.

But now, all ignorant of the length
Of time's uncertain wing,
It goads me, like the goblin bee,
That will not state its sting.

~Emily Dickinson

Love this entire post. Autumn is fantastic. I was worried we'd get gypped over here in the northeast because the colors seemed duller than normal but today they're full-on bright. Guess they were just a little late...

i'm reading a book of Dickinson right now, good choice!
i love the teal tights--a lot of times colored tights look crazy with an outfit, but this looks so demure, worthy of Emily, i think =)

BuzzChild said...

I really love this dress. I was completely fascinating by insects as a child, but I'm not so fond of them now that I'm grown up and they get in my house! I think this dress would be the perfect adult transition of an obsession.

oh rebecca, this has made me so happy! i know i say i hate picking favourites, but emily dickinson is possibly my favourite poet ever! along with tennyson and edna st-vincent millay and shakespeare and leonard cohen and... ANYWAY, my point is, i love her, and your dress is deliriously beautiful, and the leaves are so lovely, and i have tights which are exactly the same colour, and i'm thrilled to bits that you've combined excellent poetry + a beautiful dress + fun tights + the beauty of autumn into one post!

This is one of my favourite dresses of yours. It reminds me of one of my mother's old school projects where she had to pin and preserve butterflies. It's still hanging in my grandmas house. It's very pretty but I much prefer butterflies on pretty dresses like yours!
