I love this poem, it’s my favorite Dickinson. I read it to my daughter today while we painted a bird house. It was lovely.
“Some keep the Sabbath going to Church – I keep it, staying at Home –
With a Bobolink for a Chorister –
And an Orchard, for a Dome –
Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice –
I, just wear my Wings –
And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,
Our little Sexton – sings.
God preaches, a noted Clergyman –
And the sermon is never long,
So instead of getting to Heaven, at last –
I’m going, all along.” – Emily Dickinson
