    I absolutely love this poem. A wonderful professor turned me on to Ms. Dickinson and I haven't looked back since.

    Sorry, I'm not going to inject any snotty intellectual elitism here. Dickinson never needed it and this piece presents a fine insight into why. (Report) Reply

    Emerson said: It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion, it is easy in solitude to live after one's own. But great is the man who in midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day
