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—

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,

So instead of getting to Heaven, at least—

I'm going, all along.

.: :.

Thinking of it as just going to church vs staying at home on the \"Sabbath,\" to me feels a bit too limited. Maybe she was saying that its not necessary to be a religious person, or a \"worshipper\" in order to live the life that qualifies as deserving of \"heaven.\" To me the poem confronts and challenges the idea that only religious people are good/moral/honorable - and that maybe a healthy bond with the earth and our environment is just as angelic.

Not an analysis but a correction. At the end of line 11 "at least" is a typo. It should be "at last".

This poem is saying that going to heaven does not depend on going to church. One can still communicate with god and celebrate the sabbath by looking at the miracles gos has created in nature. She is going to heaven without the boringness of sitting with church because she communicated with god through the natural world
