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.
