I enjoyed once a poem that went, “because I could not stop for death / he kindly stopped for me”. I wrote a thesis for that poem, now I can’t remember what that thesis was, but I remember how I was reciting the poem over and over, and then I began singing it to the tune of “Yellow Rose of Texas”. That’s when I realized I was really enjoying Emily Dickinson. Reply I love Emily Dickinson. Her poems are so honest and unpretentious. Reply She’s amazing, isn’t she? Thank you so much for your comment, and for reading. Reply I’m not sure that this is the effect you intended, but I find the haiku hilarious. Thank you for it. Reply Yes, there was definitely something tongue-in-cheek about my haiku; I think it’s amusing how much people project onto Dickinson, and wanted to reflect that. Thanks again for reading!
