I think this is a very astute analysis. You reach into the poem and allow us to observe, with you, some of Dickinson's genius. The most prominent feature of that genius is the rhyming, I think. Tricks with metre and to some extent with diction had / have been pulled-off by many poets, but the conceptual rhyming is all her.

Interesting observations, Ralph. Thanks for this. A wee typo here:

     —and a surprise in stanza 3: Rising/Sun.

This should be

     —and a surprise in stanza 3: Ring/Sun.

Thanks W.T. and Julie. Amazing that the typo is exactly where it shouldn't be!
