What does The Sky is Low by Emily Dickinson mean?
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.
