    The poetess composes a Quatorzain here -one of her favored metrical forms- because she combines each two consecutive lines to one. For example - And sings the tune without the words -
    And never stops - at all - A beautiful Iambic heptameter - Quatorzain - for the experienced reader. (Report) Reply

    This is my absolute favorite poem! Dickinson always uses the dash in such a musical manner, and her poetry always has such lovely layers of meaning! Beautiful. (Report) Reply

    These feathers, that
    are treated as life
    Must be protected,
    from war and strife...

    To a poet, whoever is reading this/I wish you read my poems for entertainment and bliss... (Report) Reply

    And those things with such feathers
    Are being shot every day
    In a world torn by war to shreds
    Such birds have no longer nests to stay.........
