Secondo Johnson il "mold" del quinto verso va inteso come "pictorial representation", nel senso usato da ED in una lettera a Higginson del luglio 1862 (L268), che inizia con una riposta a quella che doveva essere stata una richiesta di Higginson: "Could you believe me - without? I had no portrait, now, but am small, like the Wren, and my Hair is bold, like the Chestnut Bur - and my eyes, like the Sherry in the Glass, that the Guest leaves - Would this do just as well? / It often alarms Father - He says Death might occur, and he has Molds of all the rest - but has no Mold of me, but I noticed the Quick wore off those things, in a few days, and forestall the dishonor - You will think no caprice of me -" (Giuseppe Ierolli)
