What does this mean?

The Crystal Gazer

I shall gather myself into my self again,

I shall take my scattered selves and make them one.

I shall fuse them into a polished crystal ball

Where I can see the moon and the flashing sun.

I Shall sit like a sibyl, hour after hour intent.

Watching the future come and the present go –

And the little shifting pictures of people rushing

In tiny self-importance to and fro.

It sounds like the musings of a multiple personality wanting to reconnect with herself through a crystal ball so that she can become an observer of herself and others.

She wants to be still, looking to the future while watching the present disappear. With Sibil, she sits quietly, and wisely watches the fretful and busy, as they hurry aimlless about in their agitation achieving nothing.
