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.
