life and death

@gabse, i think you touched on what the meaning of the poem is, its about
the cycle of life and death. the third and fourth stanzas create a
spiritual feel to the poem. "held in a truer land" "they're thine" "serener
bright" "golden light" the bird (or person/loved one) has died. its no
longer returning to her, it shall sing to her from a "distant tree."

I LOVED THIS POEM! It basically means: if you love something, let it go. If
it was meant to be, they will come back to you. You know the saying! It was

i personally think that the bird represents some kind of never ending
circle.. emily dickinson knows the bird has to leave her, but she also
knows that he will come back because he has to come back, that's just the
way it goes in nature.
and i also think the bird musn't necessarily represent a person/ a thing
that went away/ she lost, but could show how deep feelings can be
restrained or taken away, but will come back someday.
sry if it sounds a bit crazy^^
