Comment 1 of 1, added on March 25th, 2006 at 12:06 PM.

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.
