Emily Dickinson - A Thought went up my mind today --

A Thought went up my mind today --
That I have had before --
But did not finish -- some way back --
I could not fix the Year --

Nor where it went -- nor why it came
The second time to me --
Nor definitely, what it was --
Have I the Art to say --

But somewhere -- in my Soul -- I know --
I've met the Thing before --
It just reminded me -- 'twas all --
And came my way no more --

Analysis of Poem

When I read it to my third graders. I interpretated that she had a thought about something that had happened in her life before, but throughout the years, she had forgotten most of the event that took place. However, she was sure that something indeed happened. It was just a dream. Some students suggested that she may have had a dream or a dajavu:)
