I interpreted this poem as Emily Pleading with her brother and society as a
whole to learn to think out of the box and not conform to what
society/media tells you to think. However I have only read a brief
biography on her so I'm sure it could be interpreted any number of ways.All
in all i think it served its purpose.

dear young girls,
i fear that if you are reading this entry i am too late, still i must
implore you all to stop before further exposure to e. dickenson causes your
entire sense of poetry to slip into neo-femisist sloppy rhyming emotional
heavly edited and propagated retardation. her entire body of work is
devoutly void of even a sembalence of worth, except that it offers a very
distinct contrast with other female american poets like plath and sexton
who managed to produce poetry that matters beyond the world of folk loving
hippies and sophmore year english classes with vocab lists consisting of
words like bouquet and defenestration.
with the utmost of concern,

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.
