A Route of Evanescence

With a revolving Wheel—

A Resonance of Emerald—

A Rush of Cochineal—

And every Blossom on the Bush

Adjusts its tumbled Head—

The mail from Tunis, probably,

An easy Morning's Ride—

From Tunis port, swift to
Bizerte Bay, the Foam Spray
Delicate and shimmering
Moistens Wind and Way.
Flora and Flighted -
The colors of Christmas -
Turn to wave blithe Drivers

Just thinking we something over-think things. Seems to me the poem is about the bird, describing it in her perception, a moment in time. Due to his speed, the route fades as fast as he rides it. He buzzes, resonates green, with a rush of red. She personifies the flowers, and the mail ride from Tunis *might* be an easy ride; she doesn\'t know for sure.
I wrote a poem in college about a bee sleeping in hollyhock, and it amazed me how many critiqued it as something symbolic to relationships of men and women, and all I intended to do was describe that moment of wonder when I saw this event I had read about but never seen.
Seems to me, Emily is expressing, with the most beautiful of language, a moment of wonder that she could put to words. A moment that reveals the depth of her spirit and her love of the natural world.

The reference is to Shakespeare’s The Tempest (II, i, 246-248): Antonio says to Sebastian, speaking of Claribel, daughter of King Alonso of Naples and heir to the throne:
She that is queen of Tunis; she that dwells
Ten leagues beyond man’s life; she that from Naples
Can have no note, unless the sun were post.
From Gordon Poole)

In my estimation, only an ignorant person understands a poem completely; thus, the last 2 lines are enigmatic -- a mystery which keeps us from being ignorant -- completely. jmr

It's talking about a hummingbird! Revolving wheel= fast wings, emerald and cochineal=color of hummingbird, and an easy Morning's ride=fast, easy flight!
I just figured this out

A Route of Evanescence-- Evanescence is fading away. so a Route that will eventually disappear
With a revolving wheel-- it revolves, so the seasons
A resonance of Emerald-- resonance is the state of being resonant, ro heard. Emeralds are a precious gemstone. So like listening to something meaningful.
A Rush of Cochineal-- Possibly like blood? Cochineal is a red dye made by insects.
And every Blossom on the Bush-- a bush with flowers
Adjusts its tumbled head-- the fallen flowers liven up
The mail from Tunis, probably-- Tunis is the capital city of Tunisia in North Africa, and people are waiting to hear the news
An easy Morning's Ride-- talking about how easy it was for the mail to get there
I know I'm not exactly accurate but this is my opinion in which I am entitled!

This happens to be one of my most favorite poems. I've only just recently discovered it but I've fallen for it. I love how it describes the hummingbird. My dad and I have always ranted and raved about the hummingbirds at our house :) we love them

This is one of my favorite poems of Emilys this poem is one the Extremely few that actually have a title, its titled "The Humming Bird" And while it sketches the picture of a hummingbird it seems to tell the atom if life in that First Quatrain

A Route of Evanesence is our Route as all the World knows

With a revolving wheel the revolving wheel is the revolving wheel of life of the seasons of good times and bad times of Time itself and human nature ( she says so much in such a short line)
A resonance of Emerald she is saying Our Resonance is of Emerald it is of the Breath of life
A rush of cochineal (cochineal is a red dye)
our rush is of cochineal our passion our love is cochineal Then it goes to the hummingbird... as the bird passes her in such a quick rush of cochineal/ Every blossom on the bush adjusts its tumbled head
(the bird wizzing by a bush)The Mail from Tunis probably an Easy mornings Ride I do not know exactly what It means but if I would guess I would say the Mail from Tunis is what the bird brings an it is easy for her because of how passionate she is it could have to do with Us bringing ourselves the Mail from God or foriegn places in our every day " rushes of cochineal I LOVE Emily!!
