Time & the Garden

"I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given."

"I have not told my garden yet,
Lest that should conquer me;
I have not quite the strength now
To break it to the bee."

This stanza made me think of Foster and his reference to so much of literature has hints of the bible. You can tell Dickinson has some kind of faith in God and is very comfortable with what will come when she passes. She also give insite to a hobby of gardening that will be missed when she is gone, but she can't bring herself to "break it to the bee" This almost seems like she is ready to let happen what may but can't bring herself to bare it all.
