In the poem by Emily Dickerson, she talks about her path within society and how along with her path she made for herself it became a lonely one. She didn’t want to fall within the path of greed and falling in love with objective things. Through the diction of “divine”, and “chariots-pausing-at her low gate-” this represents the denial of being like every other rich folk. She refers to her soul as a stone because her shutting people out made her heart heavy. That’s why she said, ” Shut the doors”. This poem represents one of the hardships that she faced through her life.
