Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church-

by Emily Dickinson


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!



Please keep this in mind when trying to force others to believe as you do. There are different ways to worship God, not just in a pew in a church on a Sunday or Wednesday.
