    I like to see it lap the miles,

    And lick the valleys up,

    And stop to feed itself at tanks;

    And then, prodigious, step

    In this poem, Emily Dickinson compared train as a horse, which lap, lick, feed, and then step. This poem allows us to interpret Dickinson's inner world as child-like, and filled with vivid imagination. It is like children who perceive the world they live in as a fantasy world. They take something we see everyday for granted and then transform them into something playful. Not many adult can relate train to horse.

    在這首詩裡面,我們很清楚的看到Dickinson把火車跟馬比較。像馬,火車會跑,會舔,會吃,會踏步。這也顯示Dickinson豐富的想像力。就像一個小孩一樣,把平常普通的東西想像成好玩的東西。不是所有的成人可以把火車比喻成馬。
