Heaven is what I cannot reach!

The apple on the tree,

Provided it do hopelss hang,

That "heaven" is, to me.

The color on the cruising cloud,

The interdicted ground

Behind the hill, the house behind, --

There Paradise is found!

This is the rest of this poem
Her teasing Purples-Afternoons-
The credulous-decoy-
Enamored-of the Conjuror-
That spurned us-Yesterday!

It\'s talking about the fleeting joy and yeaning in your heart when you see a particular color, or smell a particular smell that reminds you of something long ago. read CS Lewis\' Mere Christianity

.: Heaven is what I cannot :.

This poem is simply saying That Heaven is what I cannot reach! (Remember the St Valentine letter Insolvency Sublime!) Emily was known for saying(Read her letters to Higginson) that to describe the Human Race and the Earth is impossible
and that fact is what makes poetry so beautiful.
So Heaven is what I cannot reach
The Apple on the Tree
Provided it do hopeless hang that heaven is to me
Hopeless hang Emily is saying that being able to reach for something that you cannot reach and trying to pick an Apple that hopeless hangs is "Heaven" to her. Also the Interdicted ground(or forbidden or prohibited)
An Easier way to understand it is Insolvency Sublime! which is such a true, succint, and intelligent way of stating that Heaven is what I cannot Reach!

.: :.

Being a Christian, I can see a theological implication on this poem. The idea is that as Romans 3:23 says "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God", Heaven is unreachable without help. Also, I would like to point out that there is a typo that makes to word hopeless into hopelss in the third line of the first stanza. Also, many people picture the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil to be an apple, which could be the apple on the tree.
