Some keep the Sabbath going come the Church --I save it, continuing to be at residence --With a Bobolink because that a Chorister --And an Orchard, because that a Dome --Some save the Sabbath in Surplice --I just wear my wings --And rather of tolling the Bell, for Church,Our little Sexton -- sings.God preaches, a listed Clergyman --And the sermon is never long,So instead of getting to Heaven, at critical --I"m going, every along.

Commentary through Ivan M. Granger

Here Emily Dickinson appears to suggest that true prayer occurs at residence -- or within oneself -- quite than in the general public domain that church. She celebrate a prayer that is simple, essential, direct.For her, trees type the roof of her church ("an Orchard, because that a Dome"). The living people near-at-hand is her place of worship. Regional songbirds form her choir.

It is in her solitary moments and her private communions with adjacent nature the Dickinson meet the sacred.She finds within this interior civilization that God preaches come her straight -- "a detailed Clergyman" indeed!I particularly love the closeup of the door lines:So rather of obtaining to Heaven, at critical —I"m going, every along.The journey to sky has become a component of her, it filling her entire world. That is not relegated come the future, after death or in ~ some finish time, yet a continuous unfolding in the present.
