Kg Guar dan Batu Kurau

Kg Guar, Manong
Batu Kurau

The Grass

The grass so little has to do,---
A sphere of simple green
With only butterflies to brood
And bees to entertain.

And stir all day to pretty tunes
The breeze fetch along
And hold sunshine in its lap
And bow to everything.

And thread the dews all night, like pearls
And make itself so fine,---
A duchess was too common
for such a noticing.

And even when it dies, to pass
in odors so devine,
As slowly spices gone to sleep
or emulets of pine.

And then to dwell in sovereign barns,
And dream the days away,---
The grass so little has to do,
I wish I were the hay!
(E Dickinson)
