Emily Dickinson preferred mystery and originality in her poems. Here, she
seems to be expressing patriotism for the US in preference to her family's
origin in the UK. Beck is a small ( north ) English stream and burn means
the same in Scotland. Moor is a wild, open and hilly area of British
grassland. Indeed, Dickinson is an old English family name.

Whoever posted that first comment is a reteard! If I feel that she is a
crackhead, I'll say that, period! And while im on that same note, I'l say
whatever I damn well want!

I do not know why you guys do not screen the comments made on some of the
poems here, but for anyone to say that Miss Dickinson was a "crackhead" is
obscene,and does not need to take away from the wonerment of this poem.
Only someone with no soul, would be able to make that kind of comment
anyway. And I really am not sure why he is reading her poems if that is how
he feels. Thank you.

Personally I think that Emily is a crack-head with some of the things she
writes. I love poetry, but this stuff sounds like she got high, grabbed a
pen and then started writing. She has some good ones, don't get me wrong,
but for the majority I just want to say, "WHAT WAS SHE SMOKING WHEN SHE
WROTE THIS, IT MUST HAVE BEEN GOOD!!!!"
