I love Emily Dickinson's poems. When i first started reading them i didnt
really understand them. I think that is one of the reasons why i like her.
you have to read them over and over and sometimes just really think about
what she is saying because of the writing style.

I chose Emily Dickinson for a poetry reseach paper, at first just to have a
poet but i found out that i really lke her and that her poems and very
moving. Especially this one. Yes she is into women but hey evveryone has
their preferance. I think thats why i like her, she isnt scared to say to
the word that she is or anything she is bold and daring.

I needed a poem by Emily Dickinson for an English assignment, and although
I've always loved her poems, this has definitely got to be one of my
favorites. It's actually reminded me of some that I've written before, and
I actually think that the ones that most people describe as "creepy" are
the most beutiful.

I truly believe she is the greatest poet of them all. Poetry is a major
love of mine & I often find myself wandering off into the Bard, DHL and/or
many other truly gifted persons. But when push comes to shove it's always

It was she who convinced me of the truth of reincarnation (she & Mozart).
No one that young could be that great, unless they were accessing something
the rest of us were missing.

I really enjoyed reading this poem it was unlike any of dickinson's poetry
i have ever read before. It created wonderful imagery in my head, i thought
it was simply beautiful.
