Here’s one from Emily where she compares leaves to women. I love the tone of the poem and the choice of words.
The leaves, just like women, seal a pact of confidence while interchanging their views and secrets. Their intuition or foresight or their reasoning skills are not to be questioned. They are wise, shrewd and good at judging men and manners. Let us see what Emily has to say,
The leaves, like women, interchange
Somewhat of nods, and somewhat of
The parties in both cases
Enjoining secrecy, —
The fairer sex is known (notorious) for their inability to keep secrets. Studies too assert that they would spill the beans in a duration of half an hour to 40 hours!
What can leaves do if the wind comes and eavesdrop and scatter the secrets, their views and judgmental opinions far and wide?!
NB I interpret Emily the way I understand her.
