475 Doom is the House without the Door

Doom is the House without the Door —
'Tis entered from the Sun —
And then the Ladder's thrown away,
Because Escape — is done —
 
'Tis varied by the Dream
Of what they do outside —
Where Squirrels play — and Berries dye —
And Hemlocks — bow — to God —

475 Doom is the house

Doom is a house without a door -
that is entered only through the sun -
And then the ladder is thrown
Because no escape is possible any.more.
 
The dream about what life does outside offers some distraction /variety
Looking at squirrels that play/ berries that dye *
and at tall pines that bow before God.
 
Thanks!
