God the Father seems distant compared to the Son, but He commands us
(mischievously) to believe that they are equal and have the same loving

A wonderful poem. I couldn't help but comment on this poem. This one seems
to make me smile, despite myself, with Dickinson's almost playful use of
colonial legend. The Miles, John Alden and Priscilla refer to characters
out of Longfellow's rather long "The Courtship of Miles Standish." To make
it short, Miles sends John to woo Priscilla for him to go between them, but
she falls for John instead! In the last line, where she muses on the issue
of the human/divine aspect in God and Christ. This seems to be more than a
passing thought for her, as it shows up in "I prayed at first, a little
Girl." Of course, as always, Emily Dickinson proves once again that she
was entirely her own person.
