The Garden of Emily Dickinson's poetry and optimism

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!

In Emily's garden
there is poetry
among this poetry
the sky is serene
the sun shines
leaves are evergreen
bees are bright
and so are flowers
Emily is Hukam Rajai
