Well. A. Austin is Emily's brother. B. Yes. Emily Dickison is dead. Anyway,
these are my thoughts -

"There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;" - Austin, Emily's brother, married one of
her friends, Sue. I am quite certain that Sue is being refered to, as the
other sky.

"Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields -
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;" - Emily's plea to Austin, to not care so much
about Sue, to come back to her, and her garden, evergreen, as is her love,
as he is family.

"Here is a brighter garden,
Where not a frost has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum:
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!" - No frost there has been, Emily and Austin appear to
have had a loving brother/sister relationship. Emily cared alot about her
brother, and misses him not being about.

am also caught by the use of contradictory adjectives used in this
poem,just as Jude from India poited them out.otherwise the poem is a
marvell to read.

Oh! this is vey dramatic, mysterious poem, it touched my heart very much,
I loved it, because it's so clear describing her feelings, which were so
sad, nice and thoughtful. I think it's one of the best American poems.

I think Emily Dickinson is way overrated and i can't believe that I found a
poem of hers that makes a little sense. When you look at it, she lived a
pathetic life and in my opinion is a worhtless piece of gothic trash
