I don't understand poetry. I am just a young lad who does math. Sorry.
Paraphrase: A woman has died and is in a carriage with Death traveling through the town. They pass by all the places she remembers before arriving at her grave.
Connotation: Death is personified as a civil person taking the author on a carriage ride. The narrator seems content with everything that has happened as she is looking through her life.
Attitude: The author is generally content and at peace with everything that is happening.
Shift: In stanza 4 the author is not as content as Immortality is finally leaving and she starts to grow cold and near the end of her journey. She also realizes the ride was longer than she previously believed.
Title: The woman did not want to stop for Death, so he stopped for her and approached her nicely and civilly in order to take her.
Theme: Death is a part of the life cycle and cannot be avoided.
