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 
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 last 
I'm going, all along.
