A Burdock – Dlawed My Gown By Emily Dickinson

A Burdock—clawed my Gown—
Not Burdock’s—blame—
But mine—
Who went too near
The Burdock’s Den—

A Bog—affronts my shoe—
What else have Bogs—to do—
The only Trade they know—
The splashing Men!
Ah, pity—then!

‘Tis Minnows can despise!
The Elephant’s—calm eyes
Look further on!
