Analysis and comments on Touch lightly Nature's sweet Guitar by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on November 14th, 2007 at 10:41 AM.

I have an impression of this poem that I like, though it may miss the mark
of the poet's intent. I see Nature's Guitar as its mysteries, it beauty and
the awe it inspires in the mind of the poet. If one is not prepared to do
just homage to Nature, the birds that are endowed with the true gift of
song, will look upon the pretender with scorn(?). The poet wars against
declaring oneself a true poet, lest ons becomes a bard too soon---i.e.,
before he is ready to deem himself a true poet.---just my little thought on
the matter.
