A comprehensive interpretation of Emily Dickinson's poem can be found here.
Can you tell me the synonym for the adjective 'narrow' ? Why is the word someone written separately ?
The Sky is low — the Clouds are mean.
A Travelling Flake of Snow
Across a Barn or through a Rut
Debates if it will go —
A Narrow Wind complains all Day
How some one treated him
Nature, like Us is sometimes caught
Without her Diadem.
It's the explanation for children . Nobody can explain the anybody's feelling. It's interesting to find the synonyms. I see pitiful, miserable, moaningful...
Does it have the great meaning - this space? Why?
No- we just don't do it:
Why is the word someone written separately ?

I've understood. How about synonyms?
That page doesn't address the 'some one' issue.
But ED was writing in the mid-19th century, and - as this shows - the word 'someone' was formed from the two obvious elements. And by the 19th century the amalgamation of the word was not complete. The same is true of 'no body' and lots of other compound words.
I've understood all about some one. I cannot understand anything about 'a narrow wind'.
That page contains a try to explain the unexplainable mystery.
