This little poem looks simple but it is far from that, which is probably where its magic is. Dickinson conveys many different images that have to do with the passage of time: the different seasons, the things and the people we can get to see in our lifetime (even a member of the Royals, who will eventually die just like everybody else. Things happen all the time. Life happens all the time. And death too. We have our time to enjoy and our duties to do, but these come to an end some day. And time flies. A rotation of the Earth around its own axis only takes 24 hours (by twelve performed) and we could be gone any day. I believe this is a very deep and philosophical message although Dickinson managed to keep it formally very simple. Beautiful!

Emily realizes the beauty the earth has. Especially when the sun in setting or rizing. And how that no matter what it is called it is very beautiful. And it really is.
