I dwell in Possibility – A fairer House than Prose – More numerous of Windows – Superior – for Doors – Of Chambers as the Cedars – Impregnable of eye – And for an everlasting Roof The Gambrels of the Sky – Of Visitors – the fairest – For Occupation – \(\textbf{This}\) – The spreading wide my narrow Hands To gather Paradise –
in that line, what she mean to say by "\(\textbf{- This -}\)" ? she means to say that her occupation is : "spreading wide her hands and gathering paradise" or "writing poetry, which implies whatever she is doing right now" which one ?
hm... i want to say that its your first option.... but writing poetry can be her way of gathering paradise... i may just be overthinking this (: which one are you leaning towards?

first option only but i dont understand the abrupt capitalization for This :\
probably just for emphasis..
i guess so. still i lean towards first option only but still i feel if she wants us to follow to next line to knw about her occupation, she could have simply said , for occupation - this - or for occupation - this : hmm
hmm... now you have me stumped. (x
oh well now i see every starting letter of word in that line is capitalized !
oh! lol! i didnt catch that! um.. but its bold.
so its not just for This. lol this removes some ambiguity i guess,
i made it bold ;p
oh ok, hm well then i would go with your gut(:
okay, thank you !!
ok np i think your right
pls add if u think anymore cuz u see it wid fresh eyes, it helps me
haha well in all honesty im pretty tired (x but if i think of anything else. Um but i do think that her using the metaphor of paradise is writing poetry.
oh yes i thought the same... thanks again :)
de nada(; (your welcome) haha
i think i get your first reply nw. if "Paradise" is a metaphor for 'writing poetry', then -This- can standalone there aswell. 1) "-This-" can hint 'current work' shez doing, which is writing poetry. 2) paradise also refers to writing poetry itself. such a nice interpretation(yours) thank you :)) took me a while to grasp :( !!
