This poem really shows how lonely of a life Emily Dickinson lived. The
fact that when people left her, it was such a terrible thing that it seemed
like night was on her in the middle of daylight. However, when people were
there to be with her, it was light a beautiful sunrise, bringing the joy
and hope the sun brings with it.
