Stuff - There are three suff's Poet{Emily Dickinson} , Death{Personified as a gentleman} , Immortality{Soul which never dies}. They (Death ; d=D)/(Immortality i=I) are written in Capital Letter because they are personified .Personification means referred to being as a person.

Plot - It is about the thinking about the death of her own {Emily Dickinson} and thinking of what happened at the time of her death and the journey to graveyard.

Themes - Setting and the Rising Sun. New life and Death. Seven stages of man (Disussed 3 in poem : Childhood , Adulthood , Death.)

Settings : Gazing Grain . Childrans . Ringing of the Bell . The Tomb of Graveyard and Thinking that she has been dead and centuries passed.
