    Emily Dickinson was the greatest poet to ever live. This is just one of her many great ones. it is to bad that the world had to wait until she died to find out how great of a poet she was. (Report) Reply

    The poem is nice, but the person who submitted it has taken it upon himself to change the punctuation that Emily orginally used. Punctuation means everything to a poet. (Report) Reply

    You have not printed this poem accurately. You have altered Dickinson's punctuation and have substituted 'splashless' for Dickinson's 'plashless'. I suggest that you are undermining an excellent site by lack of proper accuracy if you do this with other poets and their poetry. (Report) Reply
