Hello?? What's this about a poem not being good if it's short?? Emily Dickinson is the BEST POET EVER (so far) and this poem is made all the more beautiful by its simplicity. In fact, you could even say this poem reflects its subject; because nature is so simple and beautiful, just like the poem.

Firstly, I'd like to comment on the stupidity of "Lauren"'s comment. Emily Dickenson is no longer alive. So she cannot possibly write better poems in the future.

Also, I think the beauty of her poem is found in the simplicity. It says a lot about where poems come from. She is saying that poetry and beauty lie not in a book, but in the world. It's genius.
