Sarah - I didn't enjoy how you "wrote up" your comments in regards to the
poem. Why did you even take the time to post it?
I actually did enjoy the poem and its context. She is asking the question
that if she doesn't live through the winter (as many people didn't survive
the winter in those days), who will feed the birds when the spring comes?
It is also a cold, hard look at death with the phrase "granite lip". Like I
said, I liked it.

i thought that this poem was one of the worst that Emily Dickinson has ever
writen. I haven't rear all of Emily Dickinsons poems but I think this is
her worst poem ever. I didn't enjoy how Emily Dickinson wrote it up, using
the context that she used. I thought the poem was wonderful but the setting
and the context ruined it for me.
