What does the girl yearn for? What does this poem tell you about Amanda?

The girl yearns for solitude and peace. In all the things she dreams of, she wants to stay alone. If she were a mermaid, then she wanted to drift slowly on a calm sea where she would be the only inhabitant. She even goes on to imagine if she were an orphan. In that case, she would roam about the street in silence and freedom. She also wishes to be Rapunzel though she would not let her hair down for anybody to climb up. This shows that she is fed up of the continuous scolding she receives from her mother. She wants to go away from her home to some place where she would not be constantly nagged and would be able to live peacefully.
