Amherst arrival

20130901-161405.jpg (next to “The Evergreens”)

I don’t know the name
of this tree or its berries.

Neither do I know the yellow
butterfly that just fluttered by.

And I am only assuming it is
a bird that makes that rattling call.

Emily would have known them all,
and so I have a hint of why she wrote.

But will a fortnight be enough
to have me speaking in violets?
