how happy is the little stone...& fire hydrant

How happy is the little Stone

That rambles in the Road alone,

And doesn't care about Careers

And Exigencies never fears--

Whose Coat of elemental Brown

A passing Universe put on,

And independent as the Sun Associates or glows alone,

Fulfilling absolute Decree
In casual simplicity--

by Emily Dickinson

That is a cheerful little fire hydrant!

May not quite be Dickenson, but still very nice!!

thanks for all the comments. It seems that fire hydrants in Waukegan, Illinois are painted like this. and Oak Creek red with chains.
