Bee! I'm expecting you!
Was saying Yesterday
To Somebody you know
That you were due -

The Frogs got Home last Week -
Are settled, and at work -
Birds, mostly back -
The Clover warm and thick -

You'll get my Letter by
The seventeenth; Reply
Or better, be with me -
Yours, Fly.

"Bee! I'm Expecting You" is from a set of three poems of Emily Dickinson
composed by Emma Lou Diemer.

I Suppose The Time Will Come
The Birds Begun At Four O'clock

"Bee! I'm Expecting You!"

When performing the entire set, it is suggested that "Bee! I'm Expecting You!" should
