Houses—so The Wise Men Tell Me—

"Houses"—so the Wise Men tell me—
"Mansions"! Mansions must be warm!
Mansions cannot let the tears in,
Mansions must exclude the storm!

"Many Mansions," by "his Father,"
I don't know him; snugly built!
Could the Children find the way there—
Some, would even trudge tonight!

by Emily Dickinson

I love this piece of art just what I expected
Emily is speaking of heavenly mansions. It reflects her questions regarding her religious views.
Mansions cannot let the tears in, Mansions must exclude the storm! Mansions though larger than houses may not render peace. Thanks poet for the poem.
This is really good poem........
These houses and mansions are dwelling place and only peace can make it a better living place.
