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.

This poem, like so much of Dickinson's work, captures the mystical essence
of what lies after death. She eloquently writes of the eternal footsteps
that a person leaves behind.

This great poem by Dickinson means that life is so great that people keep
walking after death. In a town of angels-peasants, we will awake and walk
towards the horizon of childhood again. Regards from Spain, Emily.
