"A BIRD CAME DOWN THE WALK"
Emily Dickinson
c.1862
===================================

A Bird came down the Walk--
He did not know I saw--
He bit an Angleworm in halves
And ate the fellow, raw,

And then he drank a Dew
From a convenient Grass--
And then hopped sidewise to the Wall
To let a Beetle pass--

He glanced with rapid eyes
That hurried all around--
They looked like frightened Beads, I thought--
He stirred his Velvet Head

Like one in danger, Cautious,
I offered him a Crumb
And he unrolled his feathers
And rowed him softer home--

Than Oars divide the Ocean,
Too silver for a seam--
Or Butterflies, off Banks of Noon
Leap, plashless as they swim.

Northerly on Blue a Robin walks
Crosses a stream with a waterfall (0.63m)
Stops on a small ledge, the bird sits
A tree, passed on, has fallen.

The Robin makes his nest beneath
A nest of a stone crevace
As he splashes neath the falls
He knows he has come home.
