this peom was written at the turn of the century. it is now a century
later. the poets back then used different connotations and grammer than we
do today, nearly a century later. of course its not going to be the english
you would be used to! they had a much more dignified and refined life back
then, unlike today.

I'm a teacher of English as a foreign language in Spain and I have I degree
in English. I have studied some English and American literature and to this
day I never thought much of Emily Dickinson. But I know how highly-esteemed
she is over there so I knew I had to reread her works and really think
about them. This is just what I have started doing. I'm glad I found this
web site, thank you!

These are just my impressions on this poem at this time:

I think this poem is about Love and how we all need it to live a full and
happy life. Dickinson also refers to the way opposites attract (the ying
and the yang in some Eastern cultures) and she gives us many wonderful
images from nature:

The bee doth court the flower, the flower his suit receives,
And they make merry wedding, whose guests are hundred leaves;

Those lines are among the most beautiful ones I have read in a long time
and I mean it.

Of course, a sensitive person as she no doubt was, she praises the Lord,
her maker, the maker of all of us (as she sees it) and also of our
beautiful environment and the entire Earth, created by God.

I'll be glad to discuss poetry with serious readers either here, in the
forum or via email.

Thanks again for this great site.
