    dotsThere Was an Old Woman a la Emily Dickinsondots
    -------------------------------------------


    OLD WOMAN is the thing with feathers
    That perches in a shoe,
    And sings the tune of broth and bread ,
    And children fifty-two,

    And bitter in the wind is heard;
    And sore must be the whip
    That could abash little children
    That kept them without lip.

    Iíve heard it in a nursery rhyme,
    And on the peaceful sea;
    Yet, never, in extremity,
    She never did beat me.

      Hahaha this is excellent! It's humorous and a bit thought-provoking (but not too serious), really does remind me of Emily. Nice work. :)
