I understand Emily wanted to tell her brother that although there is pain
in this life, there is also beauty in it as well. She offers her brother
insight,by sharing her optimism in the midst of this sometimes mad world,
extending him some hope. I pray the same for all of us in this world. That
true peace enter our hearts and our mind. focus on the goodness, focus on
the beauty within yourselves, we all have a light inside, we just need to
silence our minds and reach deep inside. get in touch with our sacred
selves. Then all hostility will disappear. It is better to be kind, than it
is to be right. Love not war. Love not hate....I dream of world peace...and
so I pray. I do not know you and yet I love you still.

I just love those lines "nevermind faded forests Austin,nevermind silent
fields" as someone else said this poem provides a high level of comfort and
was probably meant to comfort her brother.

It should be noted that, in "The Complete Poems Of Emily Dickinson," as
edited by Thomas H. Johnson, this is the second poem in chronological
order. Obviously, it's not as complex and interesting to dissect as some of
her other, later works, but it's certainly a sweet poem that is especially
important in establishing the themes that run throughout the rest of her
poetry. There is the concept of platonic relationships (Austin Dickinson
was actually her brother) and the importance of males and females
interacting on an equal level, something she found especially important as
a woman who wanted to be an active member of society but was restricted by
societal norms. She deals with this in other poems, ranging from "My Life
had stood--a Loaded gun" to "I died for Beauty--but was scarce."
Biographically, it is also important to establish the connections she had
to her family, between her, her brother, and her sister-in-law.
While this may not be a great work of hers, it is certainly an important
thing for anyone to read before reading any large amount of her poetry.

In her 'There is another sky", I like her last four sentences:

In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum:
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!

She heard the bee voice of humming..... so nice to express her feeling.
