A Mien To Move A Queen

By Emily Dickinson

A Mien to move a Queen – 

Half Child – Half Heroine – 

An Orleans in the Eye

That puts its manner by

For humbler Company

When none are near

Even a Tear – 

Its frequent Visitor – 

A Bonnet like a Duke – 

And yet a Wren’s Peruke

Were not so shy

Of Goer by – 

And Hands – so slight,

They would elate a Sprite

With merriment – 

A Voice that alters – Low

And on the Ear can go

Like Let of Snow – 

Or shift supreme – 

As tone of Realm

On Subjects Diadem – 

Too small – to fear – 

Too distant – to endear – 

And so Men Compromise –

And just – revere –
