If one thinks about what Emily Dickinson means when she writes there is
another sky, then maybe one can get a better understanding and
interpretation of a true meaning. Now obviously, no one can actually say
this is exactly what the poem means, because we didn't write it, these
words only came from the hands of Emily's - no one elses'. However, we can
develop some sort of interest in this poem because Emily's words capture
the light and want to bring forth a true defining identity of the poem's
meaning. What I believe the poem means is that there is another place
somewhere in this world that is so serene and fair, a place that treats
people with respect and dignity, no fighting, no harsh feelings, no
humiliating actions, no decieving individuals - a place where there is
another sunshine - another atmosphere- another envrionment for people to
live about although there may be darkness there- although some bad may
occur and yet she is talking to someone as most of us noticed. His name is
Austin. Could he be her long-lost husband? A friend? A soulmate?And where
is he? Maybe he is lost or in another place. But then later on in the poem
she says "Prithee, my brother, Into my garden come!" Maybe she is talking
to her brother .... who knows? ONly she.

I think this is a very beautiful poem. I believe it talks about that she
is very sad that a loved one is leaving her but that she will see him in a
better place. That her loved one will never see sadness or darkness there.
I really loved this poem and I chose it for my homework in theatre !!

I'm probably off coarse here, but I believe that Emily is speaking to a
lover. I think she is inviting him to be with her because she has alot to
offer. Although, this is at first glance. I really have no back up info.

I really think that Emily Dickinson wanted to symbolize love as saying "its
flowers never die" I think that the name "Austin" may have been her lover.
I could be wrong but its my oppinion! This is really great poem! Her choice
of words was amazing....!!!!!!!!!

I could be way off. But i think this poem is written to a person close to
her. I believe she is calling to him to say that there is no other place
she would rather be then with him. It is a great poem!

I always take her garden in this poem as her poetry. The whole poem is an
invitation to read her writing, her OTHER self other than her actual one in
life. She has a real garden,but this garden in this poem is an artistic
garden. For her, art lasts forever.

I really enjoy this poem because, this poet Emily is not only talking about
her brother or what.Due to the fact that poem can mean different thin to
people,but for me it means that when you fall down in life and there is a
long way to go, just dust your self and start again.

R. Mahlstedt is right, I think. But perhaps she is also consoling the
brother, if he is dead. Somehow this poem projects a very high level of
comfort.
