There's an old joke about Vivaldi that goes something like this:
Some people say that Vivaldi wrote 500 concertos. Others say he wrote one concerto 500 times.
At the right: The Four seasons, quintessential Vivaldi.
So what about the seasons and the poetry of Emily Dickinson? Did she write about all four seasons equally? Or did she seem to favor one season -- and if so -- which one?
I looked into this, and the results are below -- and they might just suprise you.
** I found 21 poems by Dickinson that used the word "fall," but in only one case did she mean the season of "autumn":
"If you were coming in the fall."
