It is kind of ironic that Emily Dickinson writes a poem about the life of
words and how they should be used because she hid her words. She made her
voice known after she was gone so for a long time her words were dead. Did
she ever think that these words would be found? If so, what is her purpose
for hiding her "voice"? If you want to show the power of words, why would
you create such a powerful message and then make it disappear. Maybe she
had much more to say than we even know. I am happy that the poems were
found. Her talents are appreciated by so many poets like myself.

when i read it, i felt that we should utter words carefully and think twice
before saying the word itself. the word is like the (s)word i mean the
sword it may kill you or kill the addressee.

I find it amazing that she could fit so much meaning into such few words.
It makes me think of the riddle "what can't exist once it's name is spoken?
silence" this poem is awesome

Actually she published about 7. And this is one of my favorite poems by
her. I so few word, she expresses so much.
