No, it wasn't addressed to anyone in particular, and anyway Keats didn't move in such exalted company as that, and besides she died in 1815, the year this poem was probably written. Emma is just a name he used.
It was later copied by George and sent to his later wife Georgiana.

I know he hadn't met her nor hung out with suhc people- but that wouldn't neceaaarily mean anything as he wrote poems for other famous people he hadn't met. :lol:
Perhaps she was a young lady he fancied?
