the wheel refers to her mind...as others wheels her feet on the tide... A
tide goes out an comes in with the change of the moon....
Some have resigned the loom...meaning some have lost their minds..
some have died...some used their minds to be employed.
Other s that she speaks of royal are the ones who make her feel inferior
saying the have flung the problem back and you and I ....would man they are
so clever minded they are threatening.... this is my opinion of this poor
lonely girl...She was truly amazing.

This is an interesting poem. I believe she feels like her life is in the
dark and it is hard for her to see the Light in her situation at the end of
this dark road in her life.
