I thought this poem was very deep. It shows how little we as individuals
are noticed, though, to a very few, we are the whole world. It shows how
we are all forgotten at some point, and we have to hold on to what we have.
I enjoyed it very much, and I think it was one of her best poems.

Having busy lives we do not notice that we are individuals, that we are
unique... Sometimes life scene makes us actors and allows us to forget
ourselves... We all are piligrims in one way or another, piligrims who
sometimes have to stand alone in the way of life, who sometimes need to
grow sharp prickles, and not be remembered. Uniqueness of the person is not
always noticed and valued: others, like the butterfly and the bee, would
use him or her, while others, as free as the piligrim ( the wind and the
bird)would love "the rose" and miss it pushing up the daisies... Only a
free soul can understand another free soul...
Here I see a simile: a person is as beautiful as a rose, as strong as
rose`s prickles, as lonely as a piligrim and as free as a wind or a bird;
therefore she/he is unique.

This is probably the worst poem ever. It was so boring. I really dont
know what you people were thinking when you read this. Like one person said
"most people notice you when your dead" okay.... make something great in
your life and people will notice you. When you die your remembered. duh.

through its use of words, images, and sound poetry can provide us with new
ways of thinking about ordinary events, feelings, and momentous occasions.
In short, poetry helps us to understand about life. Emily Dickinson
polished her use of words and phrases over many years and will be renowned
for it until our society loses all interest in the written word.
