    I'll Tell You How The Sun Rose
    by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    I'll tell you how the Sun rose —
    A Ribbon at a time —
    The Steeples swam in Amethyst —
    The news, like Squirrels, ran —
    The Hills untied their Bonnets —
    The Bobolinks — begun —
    Then I said softly to myself —
    "That must have been the Sun"!
    But how he set — I know not —
    There seemed a purple stile
    That little Yellow boys and girls
    Were climbing all the while —
    Till when they reached the other side,
    A Dominie in Gray —
    Put gently up the evening Bars —
    And led the flock away —
