"Split the Lark" by Emily Dickinson

Split the Lark
by Emily Dickinson

Split the Lark–and you'll find the Music–
Bulb after Bulb, in Silver rolled–
Scantily dealt to the Summer Morning 
Saved for your Ear when Lutes be old.
Loose the Flood–you shall find it patent–
Gush after Gush, reserved for you–
Scarlet Experiment! Sceptic Thomas!
Now, do you doubt that your Bird was true?
