A day of revelation came to me, and I am not a regular Christian.
Everything was normal. There was no sermon, symbol, or sacrament.
Everyone was included in the common Meal. Time moved quickly, though we
wanted it to last forever. And as we traded crucifixes (our token of
sacrificial love), I realized that I am secure in the knowledge of our
future union at death because of our loving sacrifices for each other.

I beg to differ. Dickenson's poem is highly religious.She certainly uses
lots of words that have religeous connotation like the words "Lord",
"Crucifix" or "Supper of the Lamb". To say that this poem has no religious
connections is definitely not true. I believe that she is writing about a
day that she spends alopne with God, enjoying the things He created. She is
speaking of quiet moments spent with the Lord. I think it is a fantastic
poem!

I think that this poem has to do more with Dickinson's experience of
silence and its meaning rather than nature and its holiness...she says "The
time was scarce profaned, by speech-/The symbol of a word" which alludes to
the fact that she is exploring the psychology behind silence.

Thank you so much for giving such an honour. I feel that this poem is
trying to say that every life has to pass through certain definite stages,
often painful, to reach the final stage of death. This is understood as the
culmination or marriage with god, based on selfless love. The summer
season, of which the poet is the part beautiful enough, to make her realise
this. The poem has strong christia overtones, which establish the poet's
conviction of fulfilment in life.

Well, well, well. I can't believe I am the first one to comment on this
poem. I feel it is a great honor to be the first one listed on this
comment page. Thank you for this great honor. I think she's trying to say
that nature can be like an almost religious experience of sorts. You see,
she says that nature is so beautiful that only the holiest people should
behold it.
