The analysis of this simple poem is a simple one. In this two stanza lyric in iambs, she laments that the world has never had much contact with her (she was a recluse) and begs that in the last analysis of her life, she be thought tenderly of:
This is my letter to the World
That never wrote to Me-
The simple News that Nature told-
With tender Majesty
Her Message is committed
To Hands I cannot see-
For love of Her-Sweet-countrymen-
Judge tenderly-of Me
