    A word is dead when it is said some say
    I say it only starts to live that dayHow wonderfully accurate, and how beautifully stated.

    To me, Emily Dickinson is one of the most insightful poets, in fact writers, that has even blessed the English language. Her remarkable understanding of emotions and feelings make her pieces timeless and, furthermore, a crutch for those in need of support when they can't quite work out their own. Hopeful yet realistic, beautiful yet dark and even witty, Dickinson is truly a remarkable character and it's reflected in her poetry.

    Can anyone here help me to a source for the quote If you take care of the small things, the big things take care of themselves contributed to Dickinson (I need a source in order to ask for permission to quote if it it still under copyright, e.g., if it is in the Johnson and Franklin editions, but I have no access to them)

    Did Dan Reynolds below really offer tips to Emily Dickinson? Dan, she dead bro. More than just that, she is (arguably) the greatest American poet to have ever lived... I'm sure that she would appreciate the pointers. Oh, I'm sorry man - that was just an easy shot. But listen, you should read her biography. I think you'll find her one of the loveliest creatures to have ever lived. It appears that Eric below gets it - During her entire life critics and poetical societies kept her out, saying things a lot like you said... After she died she became the most widely published American poet ever... Guess they were wrong. I wrote a poem about such tragedy, Lost Indifference of a Learned Critic. I had no plans until I saw these remarks. Hope you have a moment to read it. Balash, you are right - that is exactly what she did - along with a few others.

Best Poem of Emily Dickinson

"Faith" Is A Fine Invention


"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.

Read the full of "Faith" Is A Fine Invention

A Mien To Move A Queen


A Mien to move a Queen—
Half Child—Half Heroine—
An Orleans in the Eye
That puts its manner by
For humbler Company
When none are near
Even a Tear—
