    But how Ourself, shall be
    Adorned, for a Superior Grace—
    Not yet, our eyes can see—....no answer for this...or yes we can't be adorned to what yet we can not see....good as usual

    Mankind has only earthbound beauty to set as a standard to guess about what beauty exists in heaven. It is staggering to think that the awesome beauty of nature is but an echo of eternal flawless beauty. (Report) Reply

    Dickinson seems to me to be trying to convey the spiritual, eternal side of nature. (Report) Reply

    Heaven heaven heaven
    I search from dusk to dawn
    Find dawn as one
    Find noon as another
    Find dusk as a rapture...........no end of Nature's beauty in her conception
    Oh Emily you are as wonderful as heaven..............

    Getting such a beautiful chance to read the great poet's poem here I express my happiness and it is felt that the poem is unique in style and theme of heaven as the reflections of other poems of her.Her famous poem if my memory is correct I am no body who are you Are you Nobody too..... have attracted the readers. The most amazing lines How Public - like a frog......... like lines are also beautiful. Here the poem is a beautiful one. (Report) Reply

    Heaven is a cut and paste job
    Of this good old earth of ours
    It is we who made a hell of it
    And now looking for life on Mars

    (Excellent piece by a Emily D in her typical style)

    all in our parody, heaven is, if obverse of hell, why both are not with in us.
    if orient brings mystery, west brings mirth.

    most of the people are born here, they stay here and similarly wear off the planet.with their reminiscences.
    and regret for a un done cause that is to sight a heaven in dreams rather realise their shut eyes.

    The beautiful side of mother nature~of what our eyes see here on Earth~ are but semblances of a place we can only imagine~Heaven (Report) Reply

    clearly Emily holds creation in awe... she is mesmerised by the mundane and ordinary yet beautiful
    she sees signs of a reincarnation at a different level, in day to day happenings
    she speaks of the presence of GOD or the ultimate being...and the meaning of loife and death on a deeper level..
    the poem is so fluid and charming.... in simplicity it is unmatched, so is the content...
    a culmination of poetic discourse, i d say
    abso amazing

    cheers to her... a celebrated poetess par excellence

    i guess she's trying to describe heaven to things
    availble to us and has a reservation of something
    we haven't seen.
