The poem could be about the sun,
or it could be about day lilies,
or about both.

I think the word choice in this poem is very important in portraying the
sun. The very physical words, such as Laying, Stooping, Touching, and
Kissing, help the illusion of movement throughout it's entirety. The lines
in this poem also have more beats that Dickinson's usually do giving it yet
again a sense of movement but also of fluidity. By starting the lines off
with clear actions and then following them through, Dickinson helps the
reader along.
The use of nature in this poem helps personify the sun. Normally we don't
give to much daily thought to the sun, but in this poem we imagine the sun
dancing and playing over the fields and then disappearing at night. I like
that she chooses to describe the sun as a juggler since jugglers are
energetic and create excitement. This poem seems to be one of her more
happy works.

this is a beautiful poem about a sunset. the word painting is absolutely
gorgeous. emily compares the sun to a leopard and talks about it kissing a
barn and laying it's head in the meadow as it sets. lovin it.
