"I keep it, staying at Home- With a Bobolink for a Chorister- And an Orchard, for a Dome-" TP Cast Findings Title(First look) The title suggests a religious reference as the last word in the title is "Church" which is a religious center for group fulfillment for some religious practices. The title also mentions the phrase "Some" which dignifies that the topic is not followed by all people and may be for a unique reference group of people. Another clue is the part "Keep the Sabbath going" the word going is normally thought as a form of travel but in this context the term Sabbath is not a physical object which says in a metaphorical term that there is no movement, but yet a path of belief in religious practice.

The final understanding of the titles meaning would be: There are different ways to achieve religious fulfillment then to follow the group. Paraphrase Connotation Emily's tone is light and happy. She talks about singing and practicing religion. She also talks a lot about nature which added to the attitude of light and happy. Attitude
