The speaker was a girl, probably in her mid-teenage years in this poem, and
she is now recalling her summers as a little girl. She has not fully
reached the stage of womanhood yet, but she has come to the realization
that she is no longer a child. She is apparently very wealthy and probably
the only child because she said she was ďa lonely kid in a big house.Ē The
light coming out of her mother's window represents her having a warm
relationship with her parents, however the half-shut window symbolizes the
mystery that her father is in her eyes. And "an eye where sleeper pass"
shows that while she does love her father he is a man that often prefers to
keep to himself. Though she has a warm relationship with her mother, she
does not trust her, which is seen when taking into consideration that her
question and thought seem to be confessed only to the stars. The point
that the speaker looks as though she is trying to get across is that even
though we may feel completely alone at time as we face the many stages and
struggles in our lives, we are never truly alone, because we will always
have the stars and God to listen to us.

I think this poem was written when the girl was grown up, she is
remembering her summer.At this time the girl is not quite a woman but is no
longer a child. She is rich and probably the only child b/c she said a
lonely kid in a big house. The light coming out of her mother's window
symbolizes a warm relationship, however the half shut window symbolizes a
mystery that her father is to her. And "an eye where sleeper pass" that her
father keeps to himself. Thoough she has a warm relationship with her
mother, she does not trust her b/c her question and thought are expressed
to the stars.
Hope this is right b/c i have to interpret it next class.

1. many years ago
2. her parents had died, she was lonely
3-4. the girl was wealthy but lonely without her parents to love her
5-7. she had always laid outside at night watching the sky on top of the
ground and grass
8. stars all around her
9-10. the lack of light in her mothers room tells that her motherís death
caused their strong relationship to become weak
11. the window to the bedroom was half shut resembling an eye
12. nobody slept in the bedroom after her parents had passed
13-14. the boards of the house were bright white
15-16. the leaves on the trees swayed representing calmness
17. the crickets chirping together was the only sound in the night
18-19. she is maturing and growing up by herself without anyone to raise
20. she laid beneath the stars and prayed
21-22. she thought God was taking care of her parents in Heaven
21&23. she thought God was watching out for her and listening to her
prayers before she went to bed
with all of my research i believe that to be correct but there is always
room for opinion
