Earthly life teaches us that this life is a term of servitude that will be replaced in the next by a joyous fruition.

Dickinson: The feet of people going home
I just discovered this site and really read this poem for the first time. I always stopped somewhere around the second stanza. Boo for me! It's a fascinating poem. Isn't it great for backing us up to see importance in terms of its context; i.e. the "canvas" of night for "morning." Gorgeous. I wonder how many other things I can "re-see" that way.
