She shows her readiness to go with death when she says that she had to “put away my labor and my leisure too, for his civility”. This further reveals that the author has come to terms with her own mortality. She makes it seem like she’s done pretty much everything she wanted to do in life, and she is now willingly entering the carriage with Death and Immortality. She knows that even if she had not gone willingly, it would have taken her captive anyways, but this does not seem to change her concept of death as kind, thoughtful, and even gentle. This is shows as Death drives slowly for her, allowing her to remember. He “knew no haste” as they drove. He takes her through the course of her life with a slow and patient ride. Immortality rides along, but is silent. After a few reads of this poem, I thought she wants the reader to not see death as something bad but as something we should accept because we will all die no matter what, and sometimes it is the fear of death that will make us want to do more in life, so that once death comes we will go with it in peace.
