I saw no Way — The Heavens were stitched

I saw no Way — The Heavens were stitched —
I felt the Columns close —
The Earth reversed her Hemispheres —
I touched the Universe —

And back it slid — and I alone —
A Speck upon a Ball —
Went out upon Circumference —
Beyond the Dip of Bell —

    (If the bell is a church bell) then it probably means that she feels like, with the evidence available, she cannot put her trust in the traditional God. And even though He chooses to hide Himself, she will continue to seek, (as it were) alone in space, a speck on the circumference of the earth.
