23 In the name of the bee

Written late summer 1858, age 27. 23 is my favorite number, and this poem has long been a favorite – the beauty of paralleling the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with the Bee, the Butterfly, and the Breeze – apt, playful, AND respectful. J’adore.

In the name of the Bee –
And of the Butterfly –
And of the Breeze – Amen!

[Emily Dickinson]

Love –
