I never hear the word "escape"

Without a quicker blood,

A sudden expectation,

A flying attitude.



I never hear of prisons broad

By soldiers battered down,

But I tug childish at my bars, --

Only to fail again!

this poem says to me that someone is just clearly living life behind bars, whether it be real jail cell bars, or just living their life cautiously.

.: :.

She expects something out of the word escape like she has something to gain from it. We don't learn if she's literally or metaphorically living behind bars, but the word escape excites her nonetheless. The last line "only to fall again" suggests that although she may want to escape her literal or metaphorical prison there's no escape for her.

.: :.

She is writing about adventure, about wanting to escape from the cloistered security of home and social convention and experience the world. She likens being trapped by society to imprisonment. She is as unable to escape convention and be a free spirit as a prisoner is able to escape a jail cell.

she's talking about the civil war.
she was deeply affected by it and she wanted to "escape" from all the thoughts that were going through her mind.
