This was to her older brother Austin one of the few close people who was
not taken from her. She was trying to comfort him. One of her not so
mysterious poems actually rather straight forward, still great.

I think Emily Dickinson is the best poet of all times but I really try hard
to understand her poems and this poem I think she is talking to her brother
telling that there is another world.

this is a great poem for all ages and, depending on how old you are, it
holds a different meaning for everyone. Even though Emily Dickinson is
dead, her soul lives on through her poetry.

I love this poem cause she always has a way with words when it comes to
poems.I mean she talks about her brother and all that stuff I think that it
is really neat that you can turn your feelings into a wonderful poem and
what not

I think she is talking about is wherever there is darkness their is light,
and wherever there is light
their is hope for her brother. Well like saying "We
fall down but we get up".

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.
