Hi, I'm working on a university project, and I have a doubt about the scansion of this Emily Dickinson's poem, if someone could lend me a hand, I'll appreciate that!.

“The Moon is distant from the Sea —”
The Moon is distant from the Sea –
And yet, with Amber Hands –
She leads Him – docile as a Boy –
Along appointed Sands –

He never misses a Degree –
Obedient to Her eye –
He comes just so far – toward the Town –
Just so far – goes away –

Oh, Signor, Thine, the Amber Hand –
And mine – the distant Sea –
Obedient to the least command
Thine eye impose on me –

@Julssss,
meter is often odd in poetry as in life....

This reminds me of my old friend Bic. He'd introduce himself, "I am Bic'

Sometimes he'd repeat it 8 times, others it was as if he put a hex on you.




Yep, that is all the assistance I'm going to give you.
