The Soul has Bandaged moments-

When too appalled to stir-

She feels some ghastly Fright come up

And stop to look at her-Salute her-with long fingers-

Caress her freezing hair-

Sip, Goblin, from the very lips

The Lover-hovered-o'er-

Unworthy, that a thought so mean

Accost a Theme-so-fair-The soul has moments of Escape-

When bursting all the doors-

She dances like a Bomb, abroad,

And swings upon the Hours,As do the Bee-delirious borne-

Long Dungeoned from his Rose-

Touch Liberty-then know no more,

But Noon, and Paradise-The Soul's retaken moments-

When, Felon led along,

With shackles on the plumed feet,

And staples, in the Song,The Horror welcomes her, again,

These, are not brayed of Tongue-

.: :.

I beleive this poem lends itself to a very long-winded analysis- but I am not the one to make it. Like most or all of Miss Dickinson's poems, an interesting use of hyphens gives the poetess her own unique style. As always, even though this is a poem of depression and 'Fright' , she manages to weave in Escape and sublime delights.
For me, this poem assumes a very intriguing aspect when the 'Lover' is mentioned. This I find is sensuous and frightening at the same time, 'fright' caressing her freezing hair and so on. It's malefic and mildly evil, seeing as how love and fright are not meant to be mixed.
For each and every one of us, a poem is a unique work of art and it gains a different meaning for each, depending on our mood, our spirit. This is a poem of Fright and the depression that all wild, free people are prone to, when they come down from their euphoric high.
Once again, as in numerous poems, the soul takes on a distinctly feminine aspect and the 'good' side of the poem is likened to a bird. This makes reading Emily Dickinson's poems like reading an epic but psychological tale.
I am not quite sure as to what as analysis should be like, so I will now proceed to check it out on this site.
