Transcript of Untitled Prezi

"Heaven" has different Signs—to me—
Sometimes, I think that Noon
Is but a symbol of the Place—
And when again, at Dawn,

A mighty look runs round the World
And settles in the Hills—
An Awe if it should be like that
Upon the Ignorance steals—

The Orchard, when the Sun is on—
The Triumph of the Birds
When they together Victory make—
Some Carnivals of Clouds—

The Rapture of a finished Day—
Returning to the West—
All these—remind us of the place
That Men call "paradise"—

Itself be fairer—we suppose—
But how Ourself, shall be
Adorned, for a Superior Grace—
Not yet, our eyes can see—
Emily Dickinson "Heaven" has different Signs -to me Basic Summary This poem by Emily Dickinson tells different symbols of heaven. I think the meaning of the first stanza of the poem is how the author views Heaven, with the beauty of nature. I think this, because Emily Dickinson is a religious person and she has unique views of numerous things. In the first stanza, Dickinson used a metaphor, “Sometimes, I think that Noon is but a symbol of the Place—And when again, at Dawn,”. This metaphor is a direct comparison between the so-called place, and dawn. In the first stanza, Dickinson stated dawn and noon are symbols of the “Place”. Since Dickinson is religious, I think she’s referring to heaven and hell. In the second stanza the sun is being personified, as the sun looms over the earth. She’s describing the way sun rises and sets around the world. I think she did this, to make a good translation from the first stanza. “Heaven” has different Signs—to me—Sometimes, I think that Noon Is but a symbol of the Place—And when again, at Dawn,

A mighty look runs round the World
And settles in the Hills—
An Awe if it should be like that the Ignorance steals— The Orchard, when the Sun is on—
The Triumph of the Birds
When they together Victory make—
Some Carnivals of Clouds— The third stanza tell how the sun spotlights the birds as they fly in the typical “V” shape. With the word, "victory and triumph", I think Dickinson shows her admiration of the beauty of nature, that God created. The Rapture of a finished Day—
Returning to the West—
All these—remind us of the place
That Men call "paradise"— In the fourth stanza she speaks of how the beauty of the world reminds us of heaven. She said said "returning to the West," which means the "Noon" - Heaven. She states that Men call Heaven paradise. Itself be fairer—we suppose—
But how Ourself, shall be
Adorned, for a Superior Grace—
Not yet, our eyes can see— In the last stanza she states that no one knows if he or she will go to paradise after his or her death I think Emily Dickinson has admiration for nature and God's creations. A 'sign' is a signal, a brief glimpse of what other men call 'paradise'! We, by our very nature, can only take delight in those 'signs' - the looming sun , the chirping sound of birds, clouds like carnivals that delight the innocent viewer. Emily Dickinson speaks of the presence of the Lord(the ultimate being) and the meaning of life and death in a clever way in this poem.
