Ah! why, because the dazzling sun

Restored our Earth to joy,

Have you departed, every one,

And left a desert sky?



All through the night, your glorious eyes

Were gazing down in mine,

And, with a full heart's thankful sighs,

I blessed that watch divine.



I was at peace, and drank your beams

As they were life to me;

And revelled in my changeful dreams,

Like petrel on the sea.



Thought followed thought, star followed star

Through boundless regions on;

While one sweet influence, near and far,

Thrilled through, and proved us one!



Why did the morning dawn to break

So great, so pure a spell;

And scorch with fire the tranquil cheek,

Where your cool radiance fell?



Blood-red, he rose, and arrow-straight,

His fierce beams struck my brow;

The soul of nature sprang, elate,

But mine sank sad and low.



My lids closed down, yet through their veil

I saw him, blazinig, still,

And steep in gold the misty dale,

And flash upon the hill.



I turned me to the pillow, then,

To call back night, and see

Your words of solemn light, again,

Throb with my heart, and me!



It would not do - the pillow glowed,

And glowed both roof and floor;

And birds sang loudly in the wood,

And fresh winds shook the door;



The curtains waved, the wakened flies

Were murmuring round my room,

Imprisoned there, till I should rise,

And give them leave to roam.



O stars, and dreams, and gentle night;

O night and stars, return!

And hide me from the hostile light

That does not warm, but burn;



That drains the blood of suffering men;

Drinks tears, instead of dew;

Let me sleep through his blinding reign,

And only wake with you!

I interpreted this poem to be quite a sexual love poem. She descrives the 'dazzling sun' but juxtaposes this with the lover's departing leaving a 'desert sky'. This shows that her lover was there in the night and left as soon as the sun rose. Leaving the persona with only the memories of the night before 'I was at peace'. Finally the last phrase ' and proved us one!' Shows a climax of emotion and could symbolise her feeling of unity with her lover in the night.

this poem talks about how the sun(day) which represents nagativiity and the night represents positivity. its representing things in an opposite and contradicting ways.

I believe that she is actually possibly describing a lost lover. she talks all throughout about calling back this person. she morns for him. and the only place she can be with him again is in her dreams. which is why she hates the sun so much. because it brings about the day and takes her again away from her love. she mourns for him \"drinks tears instead of dew\". This is a very sad and mourning poem. she describes how it is to be with him in her dreams. and then she must lose him once more every time she wakes. but then she states \"let me sleep through his hostile rain, and only wake with you\". so she is willing to bear the day if there is at least the hope of being with him again and really waking up in her dreams.

I think the meaning of this poem is clear in the poems beauty and poignant simplicity. Bronte speaks of her longing for Night and how sunrise, while it brings life to nature, kills the calm and sereness of Night that Emily enjoys. "Hide me from the hostile light that does not warm but burn". The Sun is not good as so often portrayed in other works and minds, it is evil and dark while Darkness itself is true light and good.
