Emily Dickinson - I send Two Sunsets

I send Two Sunsets --
Day and I -- in competition ran --
I finished Two -- and several Stars --
While He -- was making One --

His own was ampler -- but as I
Was saying to a friend --
Mine -- is the more convenient
To Carry in the Hand --

While God created a sunset, I created two poems (or some works of art) and a few other things.

what a strange, yet simple and beautiful concept.
i guess she is talking of a painting she has done here in competition with the Almighty's work of art.
