Ms.Dickinson is one of the most enigmatic of poets for all time. Who is the "she" in this poem? What is the meaning of the parasol? I haven't researched her notes for a clue, but I think it is a symbol for the power to defend oneself against the elements of our human frailties. She is a girl, and she is a woman---strong in her fallability. Then, perhaps I am without a clue!
