Dickinson uses alcohol and drunkenness as the vehicle of a metaphor about the beauty and awe-inspiring quality of nature. Maybe she goes a little Pinkie Pie about the whole thing, but she's trying to make a point. On one hand, Dickinson's declarations are sincere, but the hyperbole of the poem reminds us that, even in good things, there should be moderation.
