Emily Dickinson - There are two Ripenings -- one -- of sight

There are two Ripenings -- one -- of sight --
Whose forces Spheric wind
Until the Velvet product
Drop spicy to the ground --
A homelier maturing --
A process in the Bur --
That teeth of Frosts alone disclose
In far October Air.

Just as a beautiful flower starts inside a burr and is fertilized by frost, so people are matured and made beautiful by afflictions.
