yea, i've always enjoyed this poem. one, because it's shortness and
simplicity, two, because it says, as is very true, that the best of poems
one could never write.

I totaly agree with you Nicole. I think what she's trying to say is that
poem, good poems should be verbal not written down so it can be changed and
made better!

This is a short poem I definitely agree. But I've always admired Emily
Dickinson's work and its one of the many short ones that I like-- alex

I love this poem.For one it is short but has so much meaning behind it.Alot
of times it doesn't take alot of thiniking to create a poem,because all you
have to do is observe the atmosphere around you.I can also relate to what
she says about the good poems.Because alot of them fade away after time!!

I believe what Dickinson is saying in this poem, is that there is poetry
ever where in a summer sky, and that you can just see and feel it and you
can not capture it in a book.
