    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 ?

    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

    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 :( !!
