Make me a picture of the sun —
So I can hang it in my room —
And make believe I’m getting warm
When others call it “Day”!
Draw me a Robin — on a stem —
So I am hearing him, I’ll dream,
And when the Orchards stop their tune —
Put my pretense — away —
Say if it’s really — warm at noon —
Whether it’s Buttercups — that “skim” —
Or Butterflies — that “bloom”?
Then — skip — the frost — upon the lea —
And skip the Russet — on the tree —
Let’s play those — never come!
I think Emily is creating a perfect world in her room. As she is the creator of this make believe( perfect world ),she can create what she finds most enjoyable in life. She can skip the russet and the frost and stay warm in the sunshine.
