You wrote: 'I think Emily Dickinson is way overrated and i can't believe
that I found a poem of hers that makes a little sense. When you look at it,
she lived a pathetic life and in my opinion is a worhtless piece of gothic

Amazing, since most of the literate world would probably agree that Emily
Dickinson is the greatest female poet -- at least in the English

"During the time area where she could have possibly written this poem,
Emily Dickenson's brother Ausin married her best friend."

This poem was written about 1851. Austin and Sue became engaged in 1853,
were married in 1856.

This was written about 10 years before the Civil War started. Also, her
brother Austin outlived Emily, so Austin is neither in the army nor dead.

i thought the peom said alot about garden and it was very postive and it
had nothing to do with death it was happy and colorful and it helped me
oven my eyes to knew things in life.

Emily Dickinson was a complete waste of space. OK maybe she came up with
some good poems, but I think I would be able to think up some good lines if
I was a hermit and stared at a wall for days on end. She was a depressing
load of junk and I can't stand to even think of how boring her life was.

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.
