The Gentian has a parched Corolla—

Emily Dickinson


The Gentian has a parched Corolla—
Like azure dried
'Tis Nature's buoyant juices
Without a vaunt or sheen
As casual as Rain
And as benign—

When most is part—it comes—
Nor isolate it seems
Its Bond its Friend—
To fill its Fringed career
And aid an aged Year
Abundant end—

Its lot—were it forgot—
This Truth endear—
Fidelity is gain
Creation is o'er—
