Poem Analysis

Emily is writing a letter to the world in the form of a poem. The world
does not recognize her because she never stepped foot past her
house/garden. She seems to be able to predict that someday people will be
reading her poems. She wishes to pass on the messages and lessons that
nature has taught her. Emily also has the expectation that the future
readers of her poems will enjoy nature as she did (line 7). She requests in
the last two lines that the readers will enjoy her poems and not critique
them too harshly (unlike some of the people who have left comments here).
The topic/abstract image is Nature and the concrete image is a letter. This
is a beautiful poem with a great message (: Hope this helps y'all!! ~Kim

emily was a unique and morally conduced soul. she was a woman of intense
passion and intimacy. apart from her eye condition, her reclusive life was
in a sense one of detachment and safe isolation by choice free of harsh
judgments from a cruel world... i think she never felt truly accepted. her
love for women can evasively be seen with her words "her message is
committed to hands i cannot see, for love of her... judge tenderly of me."
i think emily was in touch with her devotion to god, love, life and she
sought to express her profoundness in beautiful poems which those who are
seekers of truth still find resonance in.
