If it helps:
A Billow is a large wave
Checks are colored seat checks that indicated the destinations of
passengers on a train after their tickets have been collected. (Nowadays,
we use planes so it is understandable that most people will not know this
Personally, i think this poem is rather brilliant. It tells us that
although we have not seen something, it is there and although we have not
seen it through experience, we can depict what it is like within our mind.

emily dickinson's writings are obviously good if they are still studied
today. she lived a very secluded life but was still very aware of her
surroundings. It's proven in her poems. Also, you cannot say people from
the 1800's were not bright. Society needs to read all the imoprtant things
that happened then that still help us today.

absolutely, goos likewise it has a very deep meaning,,,
it might be so short but the message behind those short and little words
has big impact on me,,,

unfortunately for you, you might not be a published writer, i wouldnt know,
but i think that her poems are deep and actually have meaning unlike some
othr poems i have read
Sure, she is not bright
she lived in th 1800's for gods sake
who was bright back then?
but then again thats just my opinion...
i really like it...

this is the worst poem i have ever read. and i should know because i have
written 10000 well written poems. emily dickinson was not very bright and
that is why it is not good!!

scanning her mutiple works, one may find that by certain reasons science
appears to be another preferable reference for emily dickinson beside, of
course, the Bible, Shakespeare's, and Emerson's.

in the last line of this poem, it says "As if the checks were given". but i
have looked at several sites and 13 out of 15 say CHART instead of CHECKS.
which one is correct??

we are always asking ourselves, 'is this true?" and Emily answers for us,
"yet certain I am... " and she expresses her faith in what she knows.
To those of us who are uncertain of what we know Emily brings confidence
and to learn her story of an isoated,single, woman of the 18th century
whose mind could help us understand our minds is a joy. She makes me
confident that the human race can create, achieve, and keep faith with
itself. Bless her.
