Emily Dickinson - How soft this Prison is

How soft this Prison is
How sweet these sullen bars
No Despot but the King of Down
Invented this repose

Of Fate if this is All
Has he no added Realm
A Dungeon but a Kinsman is
Incarceration -- Home.

I think this poem is about her father and how emily and her brother and sisters had to act. I like this poem.
