Bloom is result

-Emily Dickinson


Bloom is result. To meet a flower
result=last step of many
And casually glance
Would scarcely cause one to suspect
The minor circumstance
the minor circumstance=each minor circumstance

Assisting in the bright affair,
So intricately done,
Then offered as a butterfly
a butterfly=a flower emerging from a bud
To the meridian.
meridian=noon, the brightest time of the day

To pack the bud, oppose the worm,
Obtain its right of dew,
Adjust the heat, elude the wind,
Escape the prowling bee,

Great Nature not to disappoint
Awaiting her that day,
Awaiting=Nature awaiting the emerging of the flower from the bud
To be a flower is profound
Responsibility.
