Because I could not stop for Death –

The line “Or rather – He passed us –” is a little jarring. It marks a
sudden shift in mood. Indeed, it is the defining pivotal element of the
poem. Before, things were rather casual, reflective, full of light, and
somewhat pleasant. But then suddenly it´s shudderingly chill and dark. Even
time is turned on its head it seems, and there´s a feeling of floating away
from earthly underpinnings into a weird time-warped realm where immortality
morphs into eternity. A most remarkable poem indeed!
