I just had to present this poem to my english class and anyalize. What I
understood from this poem was that Emily is comparing the changing of
seasons to the stages and lapsing of grief. As usual, she utilizes her
devotion to nature as a way to project her emotions. It starts out somber
and gloomy, but at the end there is hope and beauty which reminds me of the
transition of night to day or winter to summer.
