Emily Dickinson - Will there really be a "Morning"?

Will there really be a "Morning"?
Is there such a thing as "Day"?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?

Has it feet like Water lilies?
Has it feathers like a Bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?

Oh some Scholar! Oh some Sailor!
Oh some Wise Men from the skies!
Please to tell a little Pilgrim
Where the place called "Morning" lies!

i think this poem is about a little boy or girl that gets lost in a bad dream and wants to know if he or she will ever get out of her or his dream while wondering if there will ever be another morning for them...im a ten yr old.

A little boy to his mother?

Last night we attended a local school concert and an 11 yr. old boy sang this song as a soloist. I watched his mother in her wheelchair watch him with swelling pride. Just a few days prior she received a visit from hospice and was told she has 6 months or less to live. The angels swirled around as the words flowed from this little boy to his mother.

Analysis

Do you think that maybe "Morning" and "Day" could refer to Heaven after dying? The word "Pilgrim" suggests a religious traveler. And the idea of a "Water Lily" is a plant that floats on water with "feet"? How odd to put it that way. It has been said that Jesus walked on water. Also, maybe the "feathers" of the "Bird" may refer to angels. Maybe I am way off on this. Does anyone out there know what this poem is really about? Maybe she questions if there is reincarnation. Has anyone out there ever heard of this interpretation?
