Analysis and comments on A something in a summer's Day by Emily Dickinson

Comment 2 of 2, added on August 9th, 2010 at 5:40 PM.

I believe that the last line of the fifth stanza of this poem should read :
"Still chafes its narrow bed--"
The "s" of "it" is missing in many versions on internet but exists in "The
Complete Poems" by Thomas Hudson. The possessive also makes more sense.

Each part of the day is transcendent.
