“The Sun Touched the Morning” is one of Emily Dickinson’s more famous
poems. I believe the morning is narrating this poem and “she” is watching
the sun arise upon the earth.
She describes how beautiful it is, rising “slow along the orchard” (line
9). I believe the morning admires to the sun very much. She refers to it as
her “wheeling king”(line 8) as if it were royalty. She explains how the sun
makes her feel important “leaving a new necessity, the want for diadems”
(lines 11-12). A diadem is crown or some kind of mark of royalty.
Emily Dickinson doesn’t use a great deal of different kinds of figurative
language in this poem, although she does use personification throughout the
whole poem. She gives the sun many life-like features, such as “supposed
that he had come too dwell, and life would be all spring” (lines 3-4). She
refers to the sun as a “he”. She also refers to the morning as a she. “She
felt her self supremer”(line 5). Another form of figurative language used
in the poem metaphors such as “his haughty, spangled hems” (line 10).
I believe what made this poem so popular was Emily’s unique style of
writing it. Many people could watch a sunrise and feel no more but the
chill of the wind. Although she notices things that ordinary people would
not, which therefore makes this poem not only a spectacular poem to read
but also a motivation to make you think about the earth around you.
