the noise in the pool

"You ask of my companions.

Hills, sir, and the sundown, and
a dog large as myself, that my

father bought me. They are better
than beings because they know, but do not

tell; and the noise

in the pool at noon excels my piano."

-a letter from Emily Dickinson to Thomas Wentworth Higginson
