Emily Dickinson - The Guest is gold and crimson

The Guest is gold and crimson --
An Opal guest and gray --
Of Ermine is his doublet --
His Capuchin gay --

He reaches town at nightfall --
He stops at every door --
Who looks for him at morning
I pray him too -- explore
The Lark's pure territory --
Or the Lapwing's shore!

I think Emily Dickonson was a very intelligent person and she also gave a lot of effort into her poems.

I think what she means by the guets is gold and grimson is that Gold is the king of everything and that he works in mysterious ways.
