Songs inspired by poems of Emily Dickinson
Lieder nach Gedichten von Emily Dickinson

Laura Freisberg und Petar Sokacic

If you were coming in the fall

If you were coming in the Fall
I'd brush the Summer by
With half a smile, and half a spurn
As Housewives do, a Fly

If I could see you in a year
I'd wind the months in balls --
And put them each in separate Drawers
For fear the numbers fuse --

If only Centuries, delayed
I'd count them on my Hand
Subtracting, till my fingers dropped
Into Van Dieman's Land

If certain, when the life was out --
That yours and mine, should be
I'd toss it yonder, like a Rind
And take Eternity --

But, now, uncertain of the length
Of this, that is between
It goads me, like the Goblin Bee --
That will not state -- its sting
Blumenstengel
