Best Answer

In this poem Emily Dickinson described an overcast and moody natural scene. Emily Dickinson evokes a gloomy landscape by describing the wind as complaining and the snowflake as debating which way to go. At the end she says that nature, like people, is sometimes without its diadem, meaning crown. Basically she's saying that nature isn't always beautiful, sometimes its as gloomy and moody as people are.
