The sky (and possibly a beautiful, true view of God) changes from day to day like a travelling show.

I am using this poem for a project for my english class. I am not very good at poetry, but this poem seems to be about a heaven thqat is removed or abandons humans. I am confused by the analogy at the end of the poem that does not match the tent analogy of the rest, can anyone help me to understand this?
