    Two butterflies went out at noon

    Two butterflies went out at noon is a beautiful poem by Dickinson, however, there is little about it, ANYWHERE! If anyone could kindly help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    I put it into Korean... Thanks to your remind

    Even though I cannot help you directly,
    I put it into Korean this morning for Korean Readers
    in my blog... Thanks to your remind...

    Here is some notes I made in my Korean translation:

    ----(notes):
    - Farm:
    Land that is being operated by one producer with equipment, labor, accounting system, and management substantially separate from that of any other unit. Land on which tenants provide their own labor and equipment shall not be considered a separate farm.
    (agpolicy.ky.gov/phase_ii/definitions.shtml)

    - Bird:
    A person. A girl.

    Good luck !

    TWO butterflies went out at noon
    And waltzed above a stream,
    Then stepped straight through the firmament
    And rested on a beam;

    And then together bore away
    Upon a shining sea,—
    Though never yet, in any port,
    Their coming mentioned be.

    If spoken by the distant bird,
    If met in ether sea
    By frigate or by merchantman,
    Report was not to me.

    Smile A bit helpful... I hope...

    Hi,
    The following comment maybe a bit helpful for you, I hope...

    (Quotes):
    As to my personal interpretation, this poem describes the process I have been experiencing, of joining with the Holy Spirit and/or Christ Self within. We expect that "Heaven" is a place; yet find as we grow that, yes, it is a place in one's Heart, and not a physical place, and that it is "right here, now" as we learn to just simply live in the moment, trusting our inner Christ Self to Guide us. -David Gershon from United States
