A Bird Came Down

A bird came down the walk:
He did not know I saw;
He bit an angle-worm in halves

    I'm doing a project on Emily Dickinson for my 11th grade American Literature class, and i need to find a poem by Miss Emily Dickinson and then analyze it, i chose this poem, but i don't really understand it, so if anybody could please explain it to me and help me to better understand it, i would be extremely grateful.

    Emily Dickinson was the greatest poet to ever live. This is just one of her many great ones. it is to bad that the world had to wait until she died to find out how great of a poet she was.

    The poem is nice, but the person who submitted it has taken it upon himself to change the punctuation that Emily orginally used. Punctuation means everything to a poet.

  • Cloe Moctezma (11/14/2005 7:39:00 PM)

    I like it. its very beautiful

    You have not printed this poem accurately. You have altered Dickinson's punctuation and have substituted 'splashless' for Dickinson's 'plashless'. I suggest that you are undermining an excellent site by lack of proper accuracy if you do this with other poets and their poetry.
