Not knowing when the Dawn will come

Can you unpack this riddle?

Not knowing when the Dawn will come,
I open every Door,
Or has it Feathers, like a Bird,
Or Billows, like a Shore —

Emily Dickinson

Riddles help to expand our minds and to question the way we use language to convey meaning.

What is the meaning of this poem?

      1. Thanks. I occasionally come up with these poetic ideas when commenting on other people’s blogs more so than in my own posts. Maybe it comes from over thinking my own posts. Who knows. Maybe I’ll turn it into a post.
