The Subversive Nature of Emily Dickinson

I agree wholeheartedly with this Emily Dickinson poem.  If there is a God or Higher Power, I believe he/she/it/they would agree with this sentiment.

*I had a great hike this morning!

Part Two: Nature

SOME keep the Sabbath going to church;
I keep it staying at home,
With a bobolink for a chorister,
And an orchard for a dome.
Some keep the Sabbath in surplice;        5
I just wear my wings,
And instead of tolling the bell for church,
Our little sexton sings.
God preaches,—a noted clergyman,—
And the sermon is never long;        10
So instead of getting to heaven at last,
I ’m going all along!
