Lyrics

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 sideways to the wall
To let a beetle pass.

Information About A Bird

"A Bird" is a poem which is often recited as a children's rhyme written by American poet Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886). She grew up in a prominent and prosperous household in Amherst, Massachusetts.

The poet writes about watching a bird hop down a path and displays her powers of observation using the bird as symbol of the distance between nature and humanity.

We were able to find this longer version

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 sideways to the wall
To let a beetle pass.

He glanced with rapid eyes
That hurried all around
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, splashes as they swim.
