UMM there is a deeper meaning than a snowstorm you idiots!

It's not obvious, but it's about more than just snow. If you look at it
closely, it's Mother Nature getting married. Or at least, her in her
Stanzas 1 and 2 are about putting on her makeup, hiding any and all
blemishes. Stanza 3-5 are about the dress itself, veil and petticoats and
everything else one would need.

"It" is about snow and I'm sorry, there are no other interpretations

In my country we love Emily Dickison poems. All the men want to have sex
with her hot body. Its very nice!!

I don't think this is showing nature as powerful, so much as beatiful

well I just wanted to say that though it was a little bit difficult to find
out what the poem is about but it's a really deep metaphor that
personificates nature and that shows its power

Some of the other interpretations are ludicrous (like this one: "an
extended meaphor that personifies the word "it" as a skilled cosmetican and
seamtress, who are beautifying an aging woman.")
In many cases Emily is describing a scene, and in this poem she is
describing several settings that are affected by snowfall = "it"
snowflakes are like powder on the trees in the wood...
it smoothes out a bumpy road...
it blankets the jagged edges of a mountain and it blankets the plain...
wraps around each rail on the fence...
wraps around each wrist of posts, looking like white ankle muffs a queen
of course "it" is snow: this poem is a series of personifications of snow
and its effects.

this poem does have a deeper meaning. There is an extended meaphor that
personifies the word "it" as a skilled cosmetican and seamtress, who are
beautifying an aging woman.
