This poem like many of Emily Dickinson's poems I feel works almost like a
mantra. Emily Dickinson is so astute and so grounded in the spiritual
territories she wrote of that her poems are embedded with sounds, rhythms,
feelings that evoke what she writes of. I found this out by accident. I
spent 3 months working with this poem: memorizing, saying out loud with
different acting techniques to improve diction and personal sound, saying
the on the stage of a Greek theater and one day I noticed I was
experiencing things more intensely in my own heart. I attribute this to
the poem: "One more new mailed nerve just granted. Some striding giant
love." Love trumps anything the "Gods can know" and takes us through
perilous times.

This poem seems to me to be about the relationship of the physical body to
the spiritual--the soul. The physical body is an important "keepsake"
while the soul is the "Deity"--the divine within each of us.
