The poem reminds me, from afar, of a poem written by Paul Celan and
published in his collection 'Mohn und Gedächtnis' (1953): "An den langen
Tischen der Zeit / zechen die Krüge Gottes.... Sie trinken, was einer
gebraut / der nicht ich war, noch du, noch ein dritter / Sie trinken eine
Leeres und Letztes."

The mood from this peom created the speaker's grievence of human life.
Happiness can never last long, it can be distracted by human nature." when
'landlords' turn the drunken Bee Out of the Foxglove's door."

Only Heaven proves to be the best place to live. the saint feels the
sympathy for the "tippler" or the drinker.

this poem is such a great poem. I think that it has alot of different
imagery and things in it and it is an all around wonderful expression of
feelings.

I am writing a 3-6 page essay on this particular poem and I like what she
is saying in this particular poem about being drunk off of life. Emily
Dickinson is rather more one of my favorite poets because she wrote during
the romance period and she is very romantic especially in her poem "Heart
we will forget him." I love that Emily wrote during this particular time
period because Emily as a woman not being married and loving a married man
this is the Literary period just right for Miss Emily Dickinson.
If anyone has any comments on my comments to this wonderful poem please
email me at blugurl69@yahoo.com

I believe Dickinson is trying to tell us that she is drunk on life. Her
surrounding and dipict visuals of nature are what she is living life for.
Comparing the life that has yet to be lived to a liquor that hasn't been
brewed. It's in the future that we will experience that greatness.
