-Emily Dickinson

The speaker of the poem is confidently describing how the sun raises, the situation after the sun rises, and setting of the sun. In the begining when the sun rises, the ribbion like rays falls on the steple of the chruch changing the colour into amethyst. The news of the sun rises spreads as quickly as the squirrels can run. The dark hills are uncovered in the sunlight and a small American bird named bobolink starts singing in the beautiful morning. The warmth of the sun makes everything and every moment creatures happy and pleasant. The speaker talks to self to be confirmed about the sun rise with the beautiful and magical rays. The beautiful landscape, clean nad shiny hills, singing of bobolink confirms the rising of the sun. The speaker is less confident describing the sunset because of lack of confident. This speaker tells of the purpling of the sky as the sun sets untill the sky turns completely dark. The boys and girls look yellow and they return back to their shelther. The care taker's father in grey clothes warns the children to take back. He lets the children enter into the gate letting other flocks go into their house. 

Stanza based explanation of the poem.


The poem begins with the speaker narrating to the reader how the sun rises. The speaker refers to the sun's rays as ribbons. When Sun rays fall on the steeple, it turns it's color into amethyst. The layering of these ribbons is a gradual process. 'the news' of this sensation travels fast. The eagerness of the speaker to talk about sunrise portroys his/her innocent views of the world. This person cares of the seemingly insignificant things, thus telling readers it's okay to pause and appericiate the ' normal' change in nature, like the sunrise. In a metophorical sense, this Stanza also hints at the excotement stemming from the begining of the life. Additionally we glimpse Emily Dickinson's regious background with the mention of "steeples", a part of church building. 


The stanza describe the event which occurs due to sunrise. The sun illuminates the top of 'hills' and "BoBolinks" (a species of blackbird) begins to sing. This Stanza highlights similarly natural occurences that seem to respond to the sun rising. It once again focuses on the beauty of nature around us. Thus encouraging readers to be more appreciative of them. The speaker is awe is apparent in this Stanza when he/she exclaims, “that must have been sun!”. This is particular line confirms our speaker is a child, as no adult would need much description to recognise the sun or its rising. 


In this Stanza, the subject matters drifts from sunrise to sunset, and the speaker's tone from exicted to reserve. The child's confidence wanes since he/she doesn't know much about sunset yet, the person a describes the little they can more saber than excited. This Stanza is more symbolic than literal, as Dickinson uses it to show the translation from life to death on a metophorical level, 'A Day' tells reader how little any living being knows about death. Like the child speaker, humans prefers to talk about more exciting things and so reserue their thought on the dreadful subject on the other hand, the literal imagery in this Stanza, present the rising sun moving from east to west. 


In this Stanza, the subject matter drifts from sunrise to sunset. The child's confidence wones since he/she doesn't know much about sunset. This Stanza shows the transition from life to death. It tells us how the small living beings knows about death. This poem describe the sunrise and sunset i.e. life and death.
