One Sister have I in our house,

And one, a hedge away.

There's only one recorded,

But both belong to me.



One came the road that I came—

And wore my last year's gown—

The other, as a bird her nest,

Builded our hearts among.



She did not sing as we did—

It was a different tune—

Herself to her a music

As Bumble bee of June.



Today is far from Childhood—

But up and down the hills

I held her hand the tighter—

Which shortened all the miles—



And still her hum

The years among,

Deceives the Butterfly;

Still in her Eye

The Violets lie

Mouldered this many May.



I spilt the dew—

But took the morn—

I chose this single star

From out the wide night's numbers—

Sue - forevermore!

.: :.

This is a poem about Emily\'s passionate love for her sister in law, it is a subtle poem in which she uses nature and strong comparisons to declare her sexuality.

Sue wasn\'t her sister, but her sister-in-law, whom she was in love with. as you can see, One sister have I in our house, and one a hedge away - in total, there are three of them... and the \"other sister\" sang a different tune and did not come the same way the other two did, so Emily implies that Sue is not in fact their sister... a nice song indeed :)

The main idea is the relationship that is being built between the two sisters and the speaker is relating herself to be one of the sisters. The speaker refers to nature when talking about her sister. And the poem informs us that they are adults, because of \"Today is far from Childhood-\" She goes on saying \"but up and down the hills\" which means the greatest and troubled times. It sounds like the sisters are at the epitome of their lives, because they seem to be running out of time together. In the 5th stanza, she talks about her sister\'s memories, how they\'re crumbling away \"mouldered this many may\". \"I split the dew\" which means the speaker cries. There is this saying that sounds like it, \"don\'t cry over spilled milk.\" \"But took the morn\" she understands now. At the end, she realizes that she only has one sister, and she appreciates her. \"Sue - forevermore\"
