In Remembrance Poetry
††††† Many famous poets have written inspirational poetry on the death of an acquaintance. Milton wrote on the death of a college classmate. James Russell Lowell wrote a touching poem on a vicarious kiss given to his deceased daughter. And Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote a long, somewhat philosophical poem entitled ďIn Memoriam on the death of a friend named Arthur Hallum.
†††† The in remembrance poetry of passionup.com does not carry any of these three poems. They are too long. But Emily Dickenson is represented by a poem entitled: ďI Had a Jewel.Ē The message is simple. There was a jewel in her hand. Thinking that it would always be there and she could enjoy it later, she fell asleep. But when she woke up, it was gone.† If you allegorize a little, you could imagine that the jewel was a friend or relative who was not appreciated till it was too late.
