What does Kosovo and Albania have anything to do with this poem?

First of all, Im from Kosovo and not Yugoslavia. I ask the administrator to
put Albania and Kosovo as a country. Thank you for your understanding!
Now, let me explain my feelings about this poem. Personally, I think that
she is writing to someone she loved or a relative. She is buried next to
him or her.

To my mind, in this poem Dickinson is offering all her support and sisterly
love to her elder brother Austin. She is obviously trying to boost his
morale. Maybe he was going through difficult times when she wrote this. Or
who knows? Maybe this was an invitation to share her world of art and
imagination. That was certainly a good way to escape routine! He being a
lawyer he may have been more matter-of-fact than she was or his life was
just too hectic and through the images in this simple and beautiful poem
she wants to bring him loads of optimism and hope for a better future.
and maybe build up on his confidence at a rough time. She might also be
referring to the Garden of Eden. You can never forget religion and
spirituality when reading Dickinson. And in the Garden of Eden, unlike in
our world, everything is supposed to be perfect. She, as a believer, knew
that very well.
