I think the other poem you're talking about is #95:
"My nosegays are for captives", right?

I can't remember the name of the poem, but she wrote at least one other
that has to deal with what she can offer. I believe that all she felt she
had to offer was her poetry, and nothing more. But then again, she made it
easy to interpet it in another manner.

I think "this" refers to this poem or all of her poetry in general. Her
poetry is all she has to show for herself; her poetry and her heart because
her heart is in her poetry, so to say.
The "fields" and "meadows wide" and all these nature references probably
mean that her poetry is directly derived from Nature. "Someone the sum
could tell" probably means that the subjects of her poems are so universal
and intuitive that any one could get them and "tell" about them.

I do believe this poem is about desire. Deepfelt desire to have something
to show the world.
