In case you really lack that much knowledge on Dickinson's work or any
poetry at all, there is always the literal meaning and then another meaning
that you have to investigate or read between the lines to get!
Kind of like the childhood nursery rhyme "Ring Around the Rosie Pocket Full
of Posies Ashes Ashes We all Fall Down" I believe it is referring to the
Plague, or something I can't quite remember but I do know "We All Fall
Down" is referring to death. Please don't make comments if they don't
require even a shred of intelligence.

Some of you people dont know what your talking about. Some of you peoples
comments dont have anything to do with Emily Dickinson's topic. Ex- the 2
people (MARISOL and Katie from United States) talking about the Civil War.
The poem is talking about the colors of the morning and evening sky NOT the
CIVIL WAR. PLEASE STICK TO THE TOPIC NEXT TIME YOU MAKE A COMMENT.

I THINK ITS A REALLY NEAT POEM BUT I DIDNT SEE THE MEANING ABOUT THE CIVIL
WAR BUT I CAN SEE WHY IT MAY BE THE IMAGERY OF THIS POEMS FELLS SO SURREAL
THAT U CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE SKY BEING COMPOSED

This is such an interesting poem with a double meaning. I love double
meanings, they are so neat. You know the person really thought out their
poem before making it, you know they hold it dear to their hearts, and hope
that other people will love it just like they do, which I hope we all do.

I am using this poem for an honors application and I love how it has two
meanings! Thanks for helping me out on the civil war meaning guys. I
couldn't have done it without you.
