I find it particularly interesting that death is personified as a kindly man who stops to give the speaker a ride in what I take to be a horse-drawn buggy. I don't feel that the speaker is actually dead but is so busily engaged with mundane matters that she never stops to think about the fact that she is going to have to die someday. In this respect she is like most of us. I like the suggestion that the speaker realizes that dying is like being taken for a long and pleasant ride and that there is nothing to fear because the destination is immortality. This is a very simple poem, written in Emily Dickinson's characteristic "common meter," but it deals with a matter of the utmost importance and has great spiritual and emotional depth.
