A Bird came down the Walk

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 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, plashless as they swim.
