A symbolic description of sunrise and sunset--possibly of the rush of youth
and the calm of old age?

This is a poem without hidden meaning for most readers. Just a clean,
bright and fresh approach to a plain old sunrise.

It seems like whenever Emily writes a poem about nature it has a double
meaning, but I really haven't a clue. The sunset part makes me wonder if
she's referring to someone slipping away from her b4 she knew it, but I
don't know what that someone/something would be.

I think that this poem doesnt really have any metaphorical meaning i think
she is just talking about how beautiful the sunrise is. Among other things,
she wrote about nature and the little things in life most people didnt
notice. So i think with this she is just trying to show the beauty in
something as simplistic as the sun rise.

I no it's a gr8 poem. It has amazing IMAGERY, but I still don't get the
metaphorical meanin behind it. If any1 gets it , it is always nice to share
your thinking. Anyways, really nice poem.
