A Bird Came Down Analysis



Author: Poetry of Emily Dickinson Type: Poetry Views: 1441

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.

This poem represents society and its savagery, how it can eat one up. But it also shows the gentleness of scoiety. Moreover it presents the split between nature and civilized man. It seems as if the observer wants to learn or become one with nature (the bird) however the bird knows this is not possible and flees.

The bird was a friendly fellow. He would drop on the walkways of NY (new york). In class we all love this poem.

The speaker describes once seeing a bird come down the walk, unaware that it was being watched. The bird ate an angleworm, then “drank a Dew / From a convenient Grass—,” then hopped sideways to let a beetle pass by. The bird’s frightened, bead-like eyes glanced all around. Cautiously, the speaker offered him “a Crumb,” but the bird “unrolled his feathers” and flew away—as though rowing in the water, but with a grace gentler than that with which “Oars divide the ocean” or butterflies leap “off Banks of Noon”; the bird appeared to swim without splashing..

I think this poem is comparing the easy life of birds and other animals to the more complex, difficult lives of humans.

this clearly illustrates the juxaposition of american society and the enslaved africans. the slaves fight for their rights and want the white people out of their way. when it states the bird moved to the side to let the beetle pass it represents that the blacks want the whites to get out of their way.

.: :.

the poem uses iambic trimeter with occasional four-syllable lines, following a loose ABCB rhyme scheme, and rhythmically breaking up the meter with long dashes

this shows and illustrates the difference between man nad bird. this doesn`t automatically imply that one has to go beyond the other. this teaches the lesson that one has to be conteneted of what he has and use it in a way that can really be productive.=)
