This poem is about the spirit world that was in constant communication with
Emily....That's where her poetry came from.

Diskinson philosophically explains and coupled with her relgious beliefs
seeks an understanding to the riddle of life inorganic and organic, " Can I
expound the skies". She states "Some Things there be" She mixes the
concepts of Are and Be, by using the term things, living creatures bees and
bumblebees are not things,(concepts and inorganic material are things). She
is not especially amazed by the existence of things, what does behooveh her
are seeds of life birth and the rebirth and the next life of tranquility
(still) and eternity remain (still) the riddle. Ah but she says it so
poetically. The Beetles answer part of her riddle "Let it be, let it be"
In the following poem i point out the difference of are and be


How incredible to be
When so many things
Are not
That I am, and think to be
That they are
But canot be
