This poem has many meanings. Literally, it means that if you take a rose
away from its home, it will not be missed by anyone but a butterfly or bee.
The implicit meaning, however, is more complicated. The rose symbolizes a
perfect human being- everyone adores it’s beauty. When its gone, though,
nobody misses it. The poet uses alliteration to help the poem flow. For
example- “only a bee… only a butterfly… only a bird… only a breeze.” She
also uses the half rhyme (or slant rhyme) sequence (be rhymes with thee,
butterfly rhymes with lie, and sigh rhymes with die). The poet also
capitalizes important words and uses personification (“Bird will wonder”,
“breeze will sigh”, etc)

"pilgrim" term disagreement

Emily Dickinson routinely used "pilgrim" and "pilgrimage" type terms, not
in the vernacular (slang) we are used to today, but if you read it as she
wrote it, a pilgrim is traditionally one who embarks on a religious
journey, which makes the remainder of that phrase make sense: "it might a
PILGRIM be...did I not take it from the ways...AND HOLD IT UP TO THEE..."
She was symbolically representing that by bringing the rose from its place
up to "thee" (whoever she meant then, or perhaps God, it isn't clear, but
she did have a difficult and impossible to make reality situation with a
man due to circumstance) as its journey from the earth to the nose of
"thee" (again being whomever she chose to leave out of the poem save that
phrase, which also leaves open interpretation as to who "thee" was, but the
prior comment, with all due respect, does not fit in with the remainder of
that poem, although it shows how our use of language is much different now
than in the past, and also is a wonderful sign that she is still making us
think after all this time. I hope someone replies with thoughts - she's my
favorite poet in her use of imagery and care with brevity of words to
explain infinite concepts with infinite meanings that are still relevant to
us today.

She says "it might a pilgrim be" meaning its a foreigner or someone who is
different from the others around it. And the Bee,Butterfly,Breeze and Bird
are capatilized to represent people in her life. the Rose representing her.
