Emily Dickinson - 'Twas such a little -- little boat

'Twas such a little -- little boat
That toddled down the bay!
'Twas such a gallant -- gallant sea
That beckoned it away!

'Twas such a greedy, greedy wave
That licked it from the Coast --
Nor ever guessed the stately sails
My little craft was lost!

Another beautiful poem.I am particularly fond of reading Emily Dickinson's poetry.Is this poem about life?I am really not sure because how do i know what Emily had in her mind?
