    This is my absolute favorite poem! Dickinson always uses the dash in such a musical manner, and her poetry always has such lovely layers of meaning! Beautiful.

    These feathers, that
    are treated as life
    Must be protected,
    from war and strife...

    To a poet, whoever is reading this/I wish you read my poems for entertainment and bliss...

    And those things with such feathers
    Are being shot every day
    In a world torn by war to shreds
    Such birds have no longer nests to stay.........
