Review of "Teach me I am forgotten by the dead" by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Teach me I am forgotten by the dead by Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882) (pictured) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on the anniversary of the poet's birth, May 25, 2013.  It appears to be a moralistic poem about living a virtuous life but with questionable motives for doing so--a little deep for me.
