i think this poem is about a little boy or girl that gets lost in a bad
dream and wants to know if he or she will ever get out of her or his dream
while wondering if there will ever be another morning for them...im a ten
yr old.

A little boy to his mother?

Last night we attended a local school concert and an 11 yr. old boy sang
this song as a soloist. I watched his mother in her wheelchair watch him
with swelling pride. Just a few days prior she received a visit from
hospice and was told she has 6 months or less to live. The angels swirled
around as the words flowed from this little boy to his mother.

Do you think that maybe "Morning" and "Day" could refer to Heaven after
dying? The word "Pilgrim" suggests a religious traveler. And the idea of a
"Water Lily" is a plant that floats on water with "feet"? How odd to put it
that way. It has been said that Jesus walked on water. Also, maybe the
"feathers" of the "Bird" may refer to angels. Maybe I am way off on this.
Does anyone out there know what this poem is really about? Maybe she
questions if there is reincarnation. Has anyone out there ever heard of
this interpretation?

rude comments

I love this poem and emily is someone i look up to, regueardless if she
lived in her house losing contact with people everyday. She was an amazing
poet and i hope to one day be just like her. Every time i read her poems i
feel i understand exactly how she felt. So if anyone has something bad to
say then keep it to yourself; no one wants to hear your trash talk about
one of the best poets of all time.

This poem is a load of crap. The poem was written by some person who lived
in their basement and never got out. Get a life.

I am singing two versions of this song in private voice lessons, and I am
trying to interpret the poem to add meaning to performance. I am currently
trying to decide whether it is a metaphor, comparing morning to
daylight/happiness, while the narrator currently resides in dark/sadness,
or whether it is more theoretical, like wondering why there really is a
morning, and how we as humans percieve things such as questioning whether
it has feet like water lilies. More of a perception through human nature
take. Any opinion?
