This poem struck me from the beginning as an expression of how
femininity&/or beauty can be a refuge from interaction. A flower is on
display and to be seen, not necessarily heard, or learned about in any
depth.Yet, “you feel for me--/Almost a loneliness.”

A flower it is at a distance, from afar, not really known. But a flower in
a vase is cut and its beauty (or one’s feminine charm) does fade. The poem
expresses the tragedy of loss of what is only transitory.

P.S. The second part seems so contradictory to the first. Is it really a
part of the same poem?
P.P.S. Hear Whitacre’s choral piece of this poem as well as many others.
The album is named Cloudburst.

yeah, the following is the first verse, that comes before the one
published.

I HIDE myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too—
And angels know the rest.

I thought there was more to this poem, such as a line which read " I hide
myself within my flower, that wearing on your breast". Anyhow, when I read
this poem I think of a person who is falling from grace. I picture Emily
feeling that her solitary personality, possably shyness, is the flower she
is wrapped in. Maybe the flower that she hides in was effecting her
relationship with someone she cared about. I say this because she mentions,
"fading from your vase". A vase offers protection and water...life, to a
flower, which she obviously relates too. So essentally, she feels she is no
longer as cherished or loved by this person, "vase".
In the last two lines, I'm not sure whether she is asking for sympothy
from someone else, or from the person she feels she as let down.
