Analysis and comments on We talked as Girls do -- by Emily Dickinson

Comment 2 of 2, added on March 16th, 2006 at 8:06 AM.

I think its about how when friends grow up they lose contact, its very sad
but very true. Thoughout childhood and young adulthood we count our friends
among our dearest but with age many forget that passion and refuse it, it
could also be the age that wouldn't permit them this friendship, with
womens choices back then being so few. Thats just how I am reading it right
now though, I mean who knows she could be talking to anything it said "like
girls do" could be a simile. But right now I am seeing it the other way
perhaps for some morbid reason it appeals right now.

I think that this poem describes the life of how girls talk and even though
it is a short poem read it or print it out.
