Here’s a colorful poem by Emily Dickinson with an mp3 recording…

MP3 of She sweeps with many-colored Brooms

She sweeps with many-colored Brooms


She sweeps with many-colored Brooms–

And leaves the Shreds behind–

Oh Housewife in the Evening West–

Come back, and dust the Pond!

You dropped a Purple Ravelling in–

You dropped an Amber thread–

And now you’ve littered all the east

With Duds of Emerald!

And still she plies her spotted Brooms,

And still the Aprons fly,

Till Brooms fade softly into stars–

And then I come away–
