Dickinson 133

This poem is about flowers closing up and being dressed in the moonlight
and dew then waking up in the morn and stretching out to the sun as
Dickinson watches over them like their mother.

Flowers (and possibly her poems) are like children going to bed and waking

Could not fully get an good understanding of the poem . i guess its saying
the children are waiting up for the sun to rise and as the sun comes up
they bid the night good - bye
