Emily Dickinson - At Half past Three, a single Bird

At Half past Three, a single Bird
Unto a silent Sky
Propounded but a single term
Of cautious melody.

At Half past Four, Experiment
Had subjugated test
And lo, Her silver Principle
Supplanted all the rest.

At Half past Seven, Element
Nor Implement, be seen --
And Place was where the Presence was
Circumference between.

Although different people see different things in poetry and a person doesn't always have to understand a poem completely, I too, was having difficulty enjoying this poem because I could not grasp any of what the author was conveying. I appreciate Andrew's explanation. Thank you

The poem is not that difficult to understand. A.D. is just trying to capture images from a train station experience--what she saw and her thought about it.

That is all there is to it.
