It did not surprise me

It did not surprise me

It did not surprise me
So I said or thought
She will stir her pinions
And the nest forgot,

Traverse broader forests
Build in gayer boughs,
Breathe in Ear more modern
God’s old fashioned vows

This was but a Birdling
What and if it be
One within my bosom
Had departed me?

This was but a story
What and if indeed
There were just such coffin
In the heart instead?



Poem It did not surprise me - Emily Dickinson
