Florabundance Still Life

Nothing brightens up a home than fresh flowers year round. Below I posted a poem by one of my favorite poets. I used (and occasionally still do) to like analyzing her poetry. What is your analysis of Emily Dickinson’s poem below? Who is your favorite poet?

Poem of the Day for YOU:  


A still — Volcano — Life —
That flickered in the night —
When it was dark enough to do
Without erasing sight —

A quiet — Earthquake Style —
Too subtle to suspect
By natures this side Naples —
The North cannot detect

The Solemn — Torrid — Symbol —
The lips that never lie —
Whose hissing Corals part — and shut —
And Cities — ooze away —
