~~~Emily Dickinson~~~Poem-A-Day~~~"Frequently the woods are pink~~~6/1775

Version 1
Frequently the woods are pink —
Frequently are brown.
Frequently the hills undress
Behind my native town.
Oft a head is crested
I was wont to see —
And as oft a cranny
Where it used to be —
And the Earth — they tell me —
On it's axis turned!
Wonderful Rotation!
By but twelve performed!

[edit] Version 2
Frequently the woods are pink —
Frequently, are brown.
Frequently the hills undress
Behind my native town —
Oft a head is crested
I was wont to see —
And as oft a cranny
Where it used to be —
And the Earth — they tell me
On it's axis turned!
Wonderful rotation —
By but twelve performed!
Emily Dickinson

Please note: here is a really cool site if you want your poem read or the Emily Dickinson poems read outloud by a male or female voice (computerized only). This is a cool way of hearing the words and cadence of the poem. Here is the link; Only problem for me, everyone wants to hear the John Wayne special today so I have to turn my speakers on so low I cannot hear it; I know; get earphones! I had a pair that worked; once upon a time!

Now for the Critique, Discussion, Analyses, etc. and then my poem offering discussing this poem.

Emily Dickinson is really trying to personify the landscape here. Emily wants to turn the landscape into a person who wears various clothes, e.g., pink, brown, and then completely undresses for the winter. The crest of which Emily is discussing are the hills in the distant, as they tend to be more vividly noticed, the distant landscape in the winter, as more is seen without tree/leave cover.

Version 1
Frequently the woods are pink —
Frequently are brown.
Frequently the hills undress
Behind my native town.
Oft a head is crested
I was wont to see —
And as oft a cranny
Where it used to be —
And the Earth — they tell me —
On it's axis turned!
Wonderful Rotation!
By but twelve performed!

Emily then "heard told" probably from her scholastic classes that the earth rotates on its axis. Every twelve hours night to dark also creates new vistas of the ever-changing landscape. This poem is about seasonal change and the personification of the landscape with such change. Emily is comparing the seasons and their effects upon the landscape.

And the Earth — they tell me
On it's axis turned!
Wonderful rotation —
By but twelve performed!

Time seems to have a frequency which is often, the world keeps spinning and frequently change. I believe Emily is happy with these constant changes in the landscape as she watches for the "crest" to come into view in perhaps the fall to winter months. This is a relatively simple poem without too much deep analysis needed ( I am not saying this because it is Sunday and I want to see the fireworks and want to get a nap in before hand, but it could be! No, it is a simple poem today! Is this synchronistic or what!

Chiccoreal's Poem on Emily Dickinson's "Frequently the woods are pink".

Seasons change
Constant Emily
keeps up with the forces
of Nature
Ever Frequent
soon, soon
The Naked Landscape
in full view!
no whether the weather today!
the Beauty becomes Changes of Seasons
All Emily's got to do is call
and she'll be there (she was here)
Emily was here!
these 12 months uptakes, intakes, rotatse
on earthen axis
Like Breakers on the far seashore
Beckons our donors
The Gift Bestowed
upon the owner
The Giant Head
of Gilead
A Balm of a Head
Who Crests experiencially
as to cause a disporportional
shift in axis
which like Nostradamus
ir may just be
this portentiousness
or Grand Scale
of Divine Resolution
Away we gather
each seasons toil from the soil
each glimpse inbetween the
loads of laundry
in the MA woods near is far
and far is near
always as near
to your heart
as a dear friend's
love to impart
impacting the Grand Design
Even moreso henceforth
Every Once in Awhile
Whilst the world sleeps
but for a brief
we wonder
of the wakes or quakes
or the Great shakes
and quickly grasp
and gasp anew
a clear fresh breath
dewy as
Every now and then
every 12 hours
ever 12 months
or the same thing
c'es la meme choice
the honors
duely bestowed;
Miss Emily
poetess of "Do it"ness
Greek Poisse
Do it!!!
Do it upright
in a poem
like this un
All poets knows it
as we
more than three
salute thee
Emily Dickinson!
Happy Independence Day July 4th 2010

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for visiting my blog. I flew over here to check out your blog, too. What a cool picture you have at the very top...a smiling sea creature??? :)

  2. I did a careful analysis of Emily's poem -- and my conclusions match yours. (Listen to me -- as if I know what I am talking about!)

    I typically don't do well with poetry, especially poems that I can't understand immediately as I read it. I remember in school studying 'Ode to a Grecian Urn', and for some reason that grabbed me -- so much so that I went home and tried to write my own ode. I think it was because I understood what was being said as the words flowed through me. Usually though I find so much poetry that leaves me flat -- and I get the notion that it was an attempt to find a universal truth or something rather than finding a simple truth.

    Perhaps I am a heathen in a sophisticated world. Maybe I just want it simple -- want it to unfold rather than have to search.

    Maybe because this is a simple poem I found myself nodding in agreement and appreciation without searching and grasping.

    Okay, I figure that I probably have some built in misconceptions and need to allow myself to be taught. I'll be back...and take pity on this poor clod.

    I like the name Chiccoreal. Is that your name or is their a story behind it?

    Warmest wishes,


  3. Dear Warm Coco and Jerry (mmm that sounds good!)...I think the really neat thing about poetry is that you can discuss it on any level; amateur to academic.

  4. Thanks, Jerry! Regarding the name "Chiccoreal" I forgot to mention the name Chiccoreal. It is a made up name at the spur of the moment; top o' the head kind of thing. I think I like Chic Corea the musician featured on my songlist here. As well I really like the idea of a "Chic" who is "A real" person or friend. Chicco being Spanish for friend! That's about it. Virginia Whitley is also a psuedenom for a romantic writer upstart! Got to start somewhere!Logb is "Blog"; Log b...Wonders what happened to Log a? Hmmm...?
