Emily Dickinson - It is an honorable Thought

It is an honorable Thought
And make One lift One's Hat
As One met sudden Gentlefolk
Upon a daily Street

That We've immortal Place
Though Pyramids decay
And Kingdoms, like the Orchard
Flit Russetly away

Memories are immortal

I think that this poem refers to the idea that memories are immortal, unlike pyramids that crumble and kingdoms that rot.
