i liked this poem mostly because i have lost a lot of people in my life,
and i didn't realize how much i loved and needed them until it was too
late.

i liked this one because it helped you see how much you miss someone or
something when it gets taken away without your say in it.

I chose to comment on this poem because I think Emily Dickinson is telling
an important message to mankind. This poem describes how people only care
to notice things once they are gone. Most people spend their time focusing
on things they dont have and forget about what is right infront of them.

I really liked this poem just for the fact that emily is talking about a
loved one that she lost and how she misses that person alot, and also
because i have also lost someone that i cared about alot and this poem made
me remember our special times we use to spend together.

I think this poem is dumb. It may be the stupidest piece of literature i
have ever read. Dickinson has had many better poems than this one.

i love the poem because i had lost someone really close to me when i was
15. This poem had brought my spirit up just a little more.

This poem really touched me, i lost someone who was really close to me and
i didnt realize how much i needed her and loved her until she was gone!

Water flows freely through the tap, but it means so little until it dries
up. When I am thirsty I long for something that means so little to me. I
exist in a peaceful society, but I don't wake with gratitude everyday
because I have not experienced the lack of peace first hand.
I think we should all stop and look around us and learn to be grateful for
those things that are invisible to us until they are gone.
