    I have loved Emily's poems for many reasons. To me this poem speaks of not love or religion but the awareness of mind when she was not able to retain the beauty of a moment as it was presented to her and regretted for not being vigilant.

    Many poets have hidden doggerel within their anthologies. It goes with the territory. While thjey muse and doodle, waiting for inspiration they pen odd thoughts. Most of them, I dare say, would rather such pieces were never brought to light. We have to learn to see things as they truly are, not as fashion would dictate us. Emily is famous and has written some fabulous poems Sadly, this is not one of them.

    When Emily wrote a religious sounding poem- well let me just say, I never saw the irony of that till now. And that makes me appreciate her even more, if possible..

    Now, pardon me if I annoy people but I don't believe in judging a poem when I know who has written it if that person is famous. I read them anonymously and judge the poem on the emotions it stirs in me. That's it. Period.
    I would expect any of mine to be judged similarly.
    I find this difficult but not rhapsody inspiring as one reviewer seems to find it. I wonder if I were to write a poem and he were presented it as having been written by the estimable Miss Dickinson he would be as pleased as if he encountered me anew?
    I give this one 5

    This is a poignant love poem. A poem of unrequited love. The Angel is Cupid with the Bow which missed Emily's mark; but, to quote a certain song, her faith in love is still devout.

  • Udiah Witness to YAH (2/16/2012 8:54:00 AM)

    Well done Emily! I'm sure you are enjoying the fruits of your labor. Yes, your memory served you well and you kept it sealed from the alchemists of your day.

    The line refering to 'glance and Bow' has a double entendre to which only The Truth enlightens. I see most comments here do capture the basic essense of this poem, many because they know of Emily's beliefs.
