A Bird, came down the Walk -He did not know I saw -He bit an Angle Worm in halvesAnd ate the fellow, raw,And then, he drank a DewFrom a convenient Grass -And then hopped sidewise to the WallTo 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.--Emily Dickinson
