The "blonde assassin" is the Frost referred to earlier in the poem.

This poem is NOT STUPID! That said, I think it might have a double
meaning...besides how Emily is talking about the flowers being killed and
all that I think "Flower" being capitalized, could be referring to a person
as well, so she's bitter that the world goes on so peacefully after the
death of a loved one? Or not.

"blonde assassin"

okay guys blonde does NOT refer to the sun! emily refers to the sun in the
very next line so the assassin can't be the sun or it would be too
repetitive... the blonde assassin is AUTUMN! "blonde Assassin passes on"
after autumn passes the sun comes back again in the same place, "Sun
proceeds unmoved" the blonde assassin is NOT the SUN!!!

The poem is not stupid

All of you people who think that the poem is stupid are obviously missing
the point of the poem, either that or you don't understand it so if you're
stupid enough to say the poem is dumb just because you are then don't
bother commenting!!!

it almost seems like a bitter antitheist or misotheist statement

This poem gave me a serious 0rgasm. I mean i j1zzed all over the book when
I read it. It got on the walls, on the mirror, and even on my sandwich
(which I finished eating by the way). Emily Dickinson is a hotty with a
body even though she put together three words for her last name and made
something dirty out of it. I love you emily xoxoxo

I Agree with the last two statements. If you have read Emily Dickinson poem
without actually think it you won't get it. The cycles of nature are
refeclting human lives and the sun continues to rise and set on the earth
even when these people are gone.
I don't know if I putting this right but to me most poems aren't
straight-forward. They usually have a deeper meaning and it is up to the
reader to uncover the meaning for hisself/herself.
