is the year for love, I have had a cousin, and two nieces proposed to
in one year. It was on a trip, and I was away from my husband who I
have been married to for 12 years, that I began to look at this poem as a
love poem. I find getting away, to reflect, a very useful tool to
appreciate what you have in a new way. When being married for a period
of time it is easy to take each other for granted. Emily Dickinson did
have love relationships, but there is a theory because she had epilepsy
was unable to marry. What ever the reason she did not marry, the rose
in this poem symbolizes a ring, the sacrament of love. Love (“The
Rose”), and the perfect natural harmony (“Nature”) of what we have is
more powerful than any royalty.
