    nature is our mother who holds us close...

    Emily capitalizes her metaphors and the first letter of the line. Squirrel, Eclipse, Bumble bee - yes, these are metaphors, so get busy!

    Emily Dickinson one of my favorites, yet I do love poets that write of nature... Cat

    That un-namable life 'Nature' is. That unamed genius Dickensen was.

    Living a simple life is so natural. So why do we complicate things by creating nature as man-made-gods instead of 'what we see'. a 10+++

    So impotent or wisdom is of the. That last line put so simply, we as humans complicate most things to the EXTREME. We over think and rethink problems in our lives that make us freak out. What is need is a brake from it all and to go back to nature and just listen with an open heart. This hits way to well to me just getting done working in Yosemite NP for the summer, great poem.

    I'm doing a project on Emily Dickinson for my 11th grade American Literature class, and i need to find a poem by Miss Emily Dickinson and then analyze it, i chose this poem, but i don't really understand it, so if anybody could please explain it to me and help me to better understand it, i would be extremely grateful.
