It is the Daisy (nature) that moves Emily to find those she loves who she
fears is lost, and that is all who read her poems; and her riddles ring,
and we come to understand when it is time to understand (when we are found)
as for some that are not, their riddles are yet within, only to be realesed
or to ring when found. She undestood the Self and our possibilities.

this poem is really touching saying that if those around her where to die
what would she do but if they lived what is going to tell her or maybe that
she dont want to loose anybody around her

This poem means alot. In so many words, I feel that it
expresses her feelings. Her poems, not only this one, all of them are so
individualized. Just by reading a poem , you can tell if it is by Emily
Dickinson. Poetry is usually not my thing, except her poems inspire me to
want to read more.

your riddle rhymes should be like a riddle. a riddle rhymes answer is at
the end of the riddle. for ex.
I fly like a bird
But, don't have feathers
I soar to the sky
With the aid of a string
Would someone pull me?
So, i can go higher
I'm a kite, I can go further.
