Emily Dickinson - Taken from men -- this morning

Taken from men -- this morning --
Carried by men today --
Met by the Gods with banners --
Who marshalled her away --

One little maid -- from playmates --
One little mind from school --
There must be guests in Eden --
All the rooms are full --

Far -- as the East from Even --
Dim -- as the border star --
Courtiers quaint, in Kingdoms
Our departed are.

Though it's hard to believe (far, dim), our loved dead are in heaven, even if in a lower place.

this poem seems to be about a girl who dies one morning and reaches the gates of heaven but is denied in. I think it is a good poem.
