i think that this poem is about how people do not open their eyes up to the beauty of the world.Sleep is the time of day when we are suppose to close our eyes not in the regular day

I think that this poem tell that many people don't think about things which may be fascinated and beutiful - they think that the sleep is shutting the eyes - but it is more

The poet conveys her idea of immortality more divinely and eloquently than all but the most inspired Christian minister. Her description of the coming day of reckoning is exquisite and compared as a breathtaking heavenly sunrise for some or stormy red clouds of doom for others.
