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.

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

It's a good poem having an under current of spirtuality.She wants to meet
hert brother but realizes that he is somewhere in a different world having
a different sky ,sun ,forests. World which is free from frost symbolising
coldness of the hearts of the people

The poem is to her brother who has seen service in the Union Army. At its
writing he is either in the army or dead. She is mentally calling him to
