As always, Nature speaks in this poem. Almost a prayer that the speaker,
the anemone, be allowed to be "summer" when it is gone; to be music when
the songs of the birds are gone. Then, an abrupt promise: to bloom for
the hearer, the anemone will be plowed under. Then the prayer again that
the speaker, the anemone, be gathered forever. Typical Dickinson:
personification and a dialogue between some element of nature speaking to
the hearer or reader, in this case. Yes, this is a "summer" poem.
