Emily Dickinson - Great Streets of silence led away

Great Streets of silence led away
To Neighborhoods of Pause --
Here was no Notice -- no Dissent
No Universe -- no laws --

By Clocks, 'twas Morning, and for Night
The Bells at Distance called --
But Epoch had no basis here
For Period exhaled.

Could some one please explain/tranlate this poem, especialy the second part and reference to epoch. Is there a hitorical oncetext to this poem?
