There Is Another Sky - Poem by Emily Dickinson

There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;
Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields—
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
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!

    The reclusive Miss Dickinson wrote this poem to her brother, William Austin Dickinson. He was probably her best friend. She called him AWE sometimes. What an eccentric soul she was! I would have liked to have known her.
    A simple, fun little poem. Not her best, but enjoyable. (Report) Reply
