Well, the poem as quoted here is merely 1 stanza plus 1 line from the full
poem - so no wonder it doesn't make any sense. The full poem can be found
at:www.answers.com/topic/one-year-ago-jots-what (for instance). It seems
pretty clear that it is about regret for some unknown l-ver, one year on
from the first (and last?) meeting... Whether it refers to any specific,
real person in Dickinson's life - well - who knows? I would guess yes.
