纪念一棵树和篱笆的死亡
路的扩张以它们的生命为代价
从此它们去了它的未来
它的伴侣留在此地
期待它的灵魂附体重新归来

Death is like the insect
Menacing the tree,
Competent to kill it,
But decoyed may be.

Bait it with the balsam,
Seek it with the knife,
Baffle, if it cost you
Everything in life.

Then, if it have burrowed
Out of reach of skill,
Ring the tree and leave it,—
‘T is the vermin’s will.

Emily Dickinson
