NATURE – THE BUTTERFLY’S DAY
Emily Dickinson

From Cocoon forth a Butterfly
As Lady from her Door
Emerged—a Summer Afternoon -
Repairing Everywhere -

Without Design, that I could trace,
Except to stray abroad
On Miscellaneous Enterprise
The Clovers - understood -

Her pretty Parasol was seen
Contracting in a Field
Where Men made Hay - then struggling hard
With an opposing Cloud -

Where Parties - Phantom as Herself -
To Nowhere - seemed to go
In purposeless Circumference -
As ‘twere a Tropic show -

And notwithstanding Bee - that worked -
And Flower - that zealous blew -
This Audience of Idleness
Disdained them, from the Sky -

Till Sundown crept - a steady Tide -
And Men that made the Hay -
And Afternoon - and Butterfly -
Extinguished - in its Sea -

Can you hear a butterfly inside the poem?
What are the predominant sounds of the poem?
I HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU!
LISTEN TO THE POEM AND TRY TO FIND THE SONORITY OF IT . . .
The predominant sounds are:
"t", "d", "th", "s" and "f"
Let's talk a little bit about the meaning of the poem!

It is related to nature aspects, like the seasons...
"From cocoon forth a butterfly" -
This sentence indicates the beginning of something.
COCOON
= potentiality, resurrection.
BUTTERFLY
= it is a symbol of transformation, happiness, beauty and renovation.
SUMMER AFTERNOON =
The end of the summer.
PARASOL =
It can be one of the flowers that Emily liked, indicating the beginning of the spring and at the same time, the wings of the butterfly.
WITH AN OPPOSING CLOUD =
It indicates the fall,
because it gives us the idea of a dark sky.
After passing for these three seasons, she reaches the end...
SEA =
It represents the death, the end, the winter.
Explain about the general idea of the poem!
Everyone knows that we are going to die (human beings and animals). It is a nature and religion aspect.
Except one . . .
THE BEE =
The bee never dies in her poems.
It's a special bee.
It is related to
"be"
and it represents the existence.
