The Prarie Home Companion broadcase is actually from 07-03-2004. The
vocalist is the wonderful Inga Swearingen, accompanied by Richard Dworsky
on piano.

The broadcast of "A Prarie Home Companion," on April 14, 2007 featured this
poem sung beautifully. It's worth looking up and hearing on the Web; at
least I found it worth hearing.

I loved this poem! In my opinion she was trying to say that it is easy to
break a heart and that a lot of people have a fear of getting a broken
heart! So we think of love as hate in a way.

This is an awsome poem! I recently did a reserch paper on emily Dickinson ,
where we had to pick a favorite poem and tell why it was our favorite and i
picked this one. Most people think that poetry is wierd, and I was one of
them but know I understand that it is abought deep emotion and feeling.
