Do you know that nearly all of Emily Dickinson's poems can be sung to the tune of "The Yellow Rose Of Texas"? And that for many words you can substitute the word "duck"?

There is no frigate like a duck
To take us worlds away....


Because I could not stop for ducks
They kindly stopped for me....


Have you got a duck in your little heart,        
Where bashful ducklings blow....

Try both of these and you will soon have a deeper understanding of ol' Em.
