Consider the Lilies

“The only Commandment I ever obeyed — ‘Consider the Lilies.”

― Emily Dickinson (The Woman in White, “Lily”), The Letters Of Emily Dickinson

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Luke 12:27 King James Version Bible

Through the Dark Sod — as Education —
The Lily passes sure —
Feels her white foot — no trepidation —
Her faith — no fear —

Afterward — in the Meadow —
Swinging her Beryl Bell —
The Mold-life — all forgotten — now —
In Ecstasy — and Dell —

Emily Dickinson, Johnson, #392
