Pronunciation and comprehension Emily Dickinson

There is another sky 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!


Emily Dickinson’s Gingerbread

As transcribed in Emily Dickinson: Profile of the Poet as Cook from Dickinson’s

original manuscript:

1 quart flour

½ cup butter

½ cup cream

1 tablespoon ginger

1 teaspoon soda

1 teaspoon salt

Make up with molasses

The editors of the book add the following about Emily Dickinson’s gingerbread recipe:

Cream the butter and mix with lightly whipped cream. Sift dry ingredients together

and combine with other ingredients. The dough is stiff and needs to be pressed into

whatever pan you choose. A round or small square pan is suitable. The recipe also

fits perfectly into a cast iron muffin pan, if you happen to have one which makes oval

cakes. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.”

Guides at the Emily Dickinson House, who in 1975 individually experimented with

the quantity of molasses, have generally agreed that a ‘cup or so’ is just about right.”
