Her poetry is amazing, no words.
About her I learned only yesterday (on the day of her death), from main Russian TV channel.
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
Are you kidding me her poetry if amazing. I have sing severe songs that were based on her poetry.
I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
"I'm Nobody!" is one of Dickinson’s most popular poems, Harold Bloom writes, because it addresses “a universal feeling of being on the outside”. It is a poem about "us against them", it challenges authority (the somebodies), and "seduces the reader into complicity with its writer."
Great poet! Seen some beautiful poems written by her. Now, I know someone who won two poetry awards and let me tell you a secret about what makes a poem good. It is two things really: the feeling it awakens and the imagery it conjures up. If the poet is talking about walking through a meadow at sunrise and you can "see it" in your mind, he or she has done her job. If the poet is talking about the pain of a broken relationship and you suddenly remember someone you dated, loved and lost 5 or 10 years ago, that is one really good poet! It is exactly the same as with prose.
