Emily Dickinson

It Dropped So Low -- In My Regard --

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was an American poet.

It dropped so low -- in my Regard --
I heard it hit the Ground --
And go to pieces on the Stones
At bottom of my Mind --

Yet blamed the Fate that flung it -- less
Than I denounced Myself,
For entertaining Plated Wares
Upon My Silver Shelf --
