For me , anyway, part of the mystery of this strange poem is the identity
of the speaker, the poet? God? neither? The first stanza is an apparent
reference to the moon and its phases and its influence in the tides.
Dickinson sees the moon as a disc to the sun, and the sun as a disc to the
moon. Part of the strangeness is the personna infused in the two celestial
bodies, and the suggested negative attribute of tyranny posed in the form
of a question that the poet leaves unanswered.
Reading Dickinson can be equally delightful and difficult!
