Slide 1: 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 abroad 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 A Bird came down the Walk By Emily Dickinson Analysis: Analysis First two stanzas: description of what the bird is doing Third stanza: bird is approached by a human The bird becomes frightened Bird flees the scene gracefully Contrast: Beautiful bird, commits crime of eating a bird.... Simile: L.11 Bird‘s eyes are compared to frightened Beads
