I think it is a sad poem, which provokes images of disppoitment and
resigned acceptance. The increased used of hyphones suggests a bringing
together or rambling thoughts, which shows the reader that she too, is
trying to make sense of it all.

I love this poem, mostly because of its unique agreements and criticism of
Ralph Waldo emersion views on poetry.
