    I am a Dickinson fan. However, would one of those who praised this poem please enlighten us as to its meaning and why they praised it? It would certainly help me to also appreciate it better. :) (Report) Reply

    Emily Dickenson was amazing, I take inspiration from her works, which live on through her own death.
