Two butterflies went out at noon

And waltzed above a stream,

Then stepped straight through the firmament

And rested on a beam;

And then together bore away

Upon a shining sea,--

Though never yet, in any port

Their coming mentioned be.

If spoken by the distant bird,

If met in ether sea

By frigate or by merchantman,

Report was not to me.

I think its about family dying and flying up to heaven to watch over them

I think this poem is reflecting on the poet\'s own desires- she wishes to be as free and carefree as a butterfly. The butterflies in the poem are able to go and explore new things without the worries and responibilities that humans have.

i believe this poem is about two butterflies that find each other and go do things they wanted to do in the past life

Perhaps Emily was reading in the local news about the comings and goings of ships and travelers and contrasted this with the apparent lack of an itinerary of the butterfies in her own garden, and the lack of plans in her own life. The mention of firmament does seem to represent some sort of heavenly place. The second butterfly could be the partner she never had or a lost love from the heavens.

I think that the two butterflies were people that she knew, and they had pasted on, and were out together flying to place that they might have wanted to go before they pasted. It says that they went somewhere and came upon a sea; I take that as if the two souls that transformed from people to butterflies had wanted to go to the beach but was unable to because of old age or something, and when they pasted they came back as butterflies and found each other again and went where they always wanted to go. that is what I think.

I think the butterflies might have been two souls of people who passed away, and they were resting on a beam of sunlight, floating up to heaven or just floating around.
