How Happy Is The Little Stone

1510

How happy is the little Stone
That rambles in the Road alone,
And doesn't care about Careers
And Exigencies never fears—
Whose Coat of elemental Brown
A passing Universe put on,
And independent as the Sun
Associates or glows alone,
Fulfilling absolute Decree
In casual simplicity—

by Emily Dickinson

A passing Universe put on, And independent as the Sun Associates or glows alone, Well expressed poem. Thanks poet.
stone that rambles alone. she says they are happy.I remember my childhood days, in the corn field, amidst verdure or after the harvest in the swamp. a strange ecstacy, an unexplainanble ecstasy glued to me.Our ancestors.one million years ago walked there.Or may be God, the creator is tracking you down and draws the accurate balance sheet.Ormay be ontologicaaly you areviewing, listening tomultiple sounds constituting the algorithm of life creation and sustenance.
How happy is the little Stone That rambles in the Road alone,
I think that since, for the first time, it rhymes its wonderful. But I don't exactly understand what she means by 'whose coat of elemental brown'
I'm doing a project on Emily Dickinson for my 11th grade American Literature class, and i need to find a poem by Miss Emily Dickinson and then analyze it, i chose this poem, but i don't really understand it, so if anybody could please explain it to me and help me to better understand it, i would be extremely grateful.
