If she had been the Mistletoe

If she had been the Mistletoe

If she had been the Mistletoe
And I had been the Rose
How gay upon your table
My velvet life to close
Since I am of the Druid,
And she is of the dew
I’ll deck Tradition’s buttonhole
And send the Rose to you.



Poem If she had been the Mistletoe - Emily Dickinson
