How Happy Is The Little Stone

Rating: 4.4

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

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.

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.

No worries, no problems, no grief just existence. It's existence is very simple, staying there in its place, rain or shine. The author must be a bit frustrated with her task and focuses her gaze on a stone, sitting there seeming peaceful. You only get one shot at a life like this so it would be best to enjoy it, the smile after you have moved on, the relief after a hard test has been done. We were made to be something better than the stone, not just to sit around there and do nothing.
