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.

this poem is great i think it shows how much we need our sleep, so when we
wake we are as refreshed as we're supposed to be...

i agree with many this is a great poem as well with her other poems as
well.

Hemmm! It is always nice to see people fascinated with Ms Dickinson;
however i must not that this poem has lillte to do with sleep and more to
do with the break of day. However this is just an observation and there is
much more to be drawn out when it comes to the actual interpetation of the
poem.
