Could I?

"Could I but ride indefinite,
As doth the meadow-bee,
And visit only where I liked,
And no man visit me,
And flirt all day with buttercups,

And marry whom I may,
And dwell a little everywhere,
Or better, run away
With no police to follow,

Or chase me if I do,
Till I should jump peninsulas
To get away from you,
I said, but just to be a bee

Upon a raft of air,
And row in nowhere all day long,
And anchor off the bar,
What liberty! So captives deem
Who tight in dungeons are."

*Emily Dickinson*
