Bobolink for a Chorister --

D. Gordon E. Robertson 

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.
