I would have been too happy for a normal life and too happy to want to get saved--told from the point of view of a disembodied spirit.

This is the most comprehensive poetic expression of the three things Dickinson desired and was denied: a steady religious faith, recognition as a poet, and romantic love. In the order of the stanzas, she rationalizes the lack of each in her live as trials that build her character and sustain her constantly wavering faith in a higher power.
