I see a lot more in this poem than just beautiful imagery of the sun rise.
I feel like this is more about her feelings about religion and its effects
on innocence. I know it seeems a little far out, but her background
supports this analysis.

do you think its really just an imagery-focused poem about the sunrise or
did she mean for it to have a hidden meaning

This poem really gets you thinking. It kinda confused me when I first read
it but after figuring out what it meant exactly I think it had an awesome
meaning to it, and a great way of expressing what she was trying to
express. It was great.

This is a beautiful poem, and not confusing and boring like most others
I've read. What beautiful imagery!

Although i am not enjoying such a project to work on, i would say this poem
is able to be understood. How hard it is somtime to actually understand a
poem in short terms, because they are more hidden in meaning and
understanding. This poem gives a sense of feeling and reality out in the
