I like this piece of poem, because it looks so simple but with full of
sexual love. Why most of us can't write such simple poems can express
freely with our mood?

THis Poem is so wonderful.It's in my belief that she's talking about death
and entering a new world,a spiritual world.And since around the time she
wrote this there was a religous debate happening it probilly written to
show HER beliefs.This poem is so deep i abostly love it!

After my first reading of this poem, I thought she was speaking of death.
Entering a brighter forest, where the leaves are always green and no frost
has come.
Just a thought....

So are we shepherding a flock of silly words and thoughts seeking to get
off the eminence?
Is that the gist? - to keep both of your flesh and mind exalted?
Along with feelings and words? Just words... and words... and words..."

i love this piece, as i do all Dickinson's work

This maybe a tad cliche ...
but what about 'There is another sky' at a postmodern electra complex?

lonely recluse, misses her brother, but to what extent?

Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
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!

massive ammounts of sexual undertones here ...

or maybe im just being smutty!

Dave Rogers from United Kingdom
