alot of emily dickensons poems are dramatic and sad, but if you hum the
gilligans theme song while you read it it seems alot more cheerful

The rhythm of the poem touches me. It reminds me of a verse from an old
folk song called Little Bessie. The lines go like this:

Just before the lamps were lighted,
Just before the children came,
When the room was very quiet
I heard someone call my name.

Audren Glass from United States
