    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.

    In her unique style, Ms. Dickinson carries one theme throughout the poem until the last few lines, then delivers the coup de grâce, the twist of fate and intended entendre, as in her poem 'A Drop Fell On The Apple Tree'. (Report) Reply

Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
