A Bird Came Down

By: Emily Dickinson

 

A bird came down the walk:
He did not know I saw;
He bit an angle-worm 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, splashless, as they swim.

The lake

it feels right

it might be bright

Mythical Beast/Ordinary Object Poem

As I slept through the night

my light attacked me

it's bright lights attacked me

The electricity electrified everything

it's shock went rightnext to me

it went buzz buzz buzz

as the light blinded me

it's light was so bright

I was scared

I ran and turned on the big light

then I realised it was all ok

all it had been, was lightening

and thunder from

the storm outside
