Analyzing Dickinson using SoapsTONE
  • A door just opened on a street–
  • I, lost, was passing by–
  • An instant's width of warmth disclosed
  • And wealth, and company.
  • The door as sudden shut, and I,
  • I, lost, was passing by,--
  • Lost doubly, but by contrast most,
  • Enlightening misery.

  • (3) The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
  • (4) The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
  • (5) The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,

  • (6) The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
  • (7) The wood-cutter’s song, the plowboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
  • (8) The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
  • (9) Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
  • (10) The day belongs to the day—at the night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
  • (11) Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
