I spilt the dew -
But took the morn, -
I chose this single star
From out the wide night's numbers -
Sue - forevermore!
Once again, this is another interpretation of mine:
“Spilt the dew” could suggest that she let this friendship flow (water i.e. friendship, as opposed to a blood-relationship)
But she still took the morn and chose the single star: Possibly saying that “morn” is the beginning; their childhood. She perceives Susan as her friend because this was the foundation of their friendship.
