My Cocoon tightens-Colors tease-

I'm feeling for the Air-

A dim capacity for Wings

Demeans the Dress I wear-A power of Butterfly must be-

The Aptitude to fly

Meadows of Majesty implies

And easy Sweeps of Sky-So I must baffle at the Hint

And cipher at the Sign

And make much blunder, if at least

I take the clue divine-

I think that this poem is telling how is she looks beyond the cocoon, she can see extraordinary things. That if we as people look beyond what we see, we can be smarter and see things in a different way that other people see it.

My Explanation is more straight forward: The first para is the transformation of the cocoon to the buttefly - the emergence of color-the feel for air - and the sheding of her dress (cocoon).
The second para is the realization that as a butterfly, flight is what makes her uniqe and this is taken as a sign in the third para where she takes a - clue also clew (wings) - and struggles through her maiden flight.

ok...this is kinda hard but Emily Dickinson is an amazing poet ...(i wrote a report on her in the 3rd grade!) so no one can really tell what she thought when she wrote it... theres sooooo many ways it can go!
I think " the cocoon tightens-colors tease" is to stand for the entrapment of herself without any way to get to what she really wants
"Im feeling for the air, a dim capacity for wings"
is more of her trying to find her way out and into the world.
"Demeans the dress i wear- a power of butterfly must be" not being able to get what she wants and find herself makes the fact shes a women seem like its bringing her down. the butterfly can basically be what it wants so it has power.
"the apptitude to fly" is wanting to be someone and go somewhere.
"and easy Sweeps of Sky-so i must baffle at the hint" is like knowing what she wants but everything is so big that she knows she shouldnt even think to try it.
"And make much a blunder, if at least, i take the clue divine-. its like being wrong and taking a chance on being right about what exactly she wants.
