Emily Dickinson - The Spider as an Artist

The Spider as an Artist
Has never been employed --
Though his surpassing Merit
Is freely certified

By every Broom and Bridget
Throughout a Christian Land --
Neglected Son of Genius
I take thee by the Hand --

I love this poem. From reading about the history of Emily, my opinion of this particular piecs is that she was writing about herself. I feel that she was the spider neglected by her father as a great poet or artist. I could be way off, but this is my gut feeling. Truely inspirational!
