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.

This poem is a very good poem, it realy made me think whats in my life that
i don't appreciate. You sould appreciate the thing you love or dont have
before there gone.
