Bliss is the plaything of the child --
The secret of the man
The sacred stealth of Boy and Girl
Rebuke it if we can

In the poem "Bliss is the playthingof the child--" Emily Dickinson in a very poignant manner reveals to us the underlying notes of the word-"Bliss".She tells that bliss which comes easily to a child , is not easily within the reach of older people.She underlines the importance of bliss in our lives,which we often tend to forget.
