Wow! I never thought this poem had ANYTHING to do with the war but this is
really cool!I just thought this was a poem about the sky. I thought,
"Finally! A poem i can actually understand." But No it had a double meaning
to it.

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.
