    Post Emily Dickinson Poem Analysis Help

    Could someone please tell me what this poem is about?

    Tie the strings to my life, my Lord,
    Then I am ready to go!
    Just a look at the horses --
    Rapid! That will do!

    Put me in on the firmest side,
    So I shall never fall;
    For we must ride to the Judgment,
    And it's partly down hill.

    But never I mind the bridges,
    And never I mind the sea;
    Held fast in everlasting race
    By my own choice and thee.

    Good-by to the life I used to lives,
    And the world I used to know;
    And kiss the hills for me, just once;
    Now I am ready to go!

    Thanks!
