A Drop Fell on the Apple Tree


"A Drop Fell on the Apple Tree" can be found in Ernst Bacon's Songs from Emily Dickinson: Nature Time and Space - Volume 1, published by Classical Vocal Reprints.

by Emily Dickinson

A drop fell on the apple tree
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh.

A few went out to help the brook,
That went to help the sea.
Myself conjectured, Were they pearls,
What necklaces could be!
