    I had never read this one before and I’m fascinated how similarly we feel about love. (Report) Reply

    What does Emily know of love? Was she not a spinster all her life? Never getting out of her home and writing nonsense sitting in her dark den, like in this poem she says she sways like grass sways in the wind, and can't keep still when he passes by. What a simile? She loves him because he knows it. Daaa! He is like lightening to her. Wow! He is her sunrise. Wow, wow, wow!

    Interesting? Nice? Well written? Heartfelt? Where, where, where., crazy folks!

    This is a horrible poem and Emily Dickinson was a idiot who has been praised for her lack of literary knowledge or skill. (Report) Reply

    The Lightning—never asked an Eye
    Wherefore it shut—when He was by—
    Because He knows it cannot speak—
    Wow..beautiful.
    Nice poem.

    The Lightning—never asked an Eye
    Wherefore it shut—when He was by—
    Because He knows it cannot speak—
    And reasons not contained—
    Nice love poem.

    Awesome expression of love- -Love happens- - Even the lover does not know why he/she loves.The love simply occupies the space in the heart and worshiped like God. (Report) Reply
