Could that sweet Darkness where they dwell

Could that sweet Darkness where they dwell
Be once disclosed to us
The clamor for their loveliness
Would burst the Loneliness —

    If it were possible for the realm of the dead—that sweet darkness—to be disclosed, there would be a clamoring for wonders of that glorified state that would subdue the loneliness we feel for the departed.

    Is this an accurate explication for this poem? I am not certain, but I feel that it is plausible.

    I would appreciate a response.
