The Wind tapped like a tired Man

The Wind tapped like a tired Man

The Wind tapped like a tired Man
And like a Host “Come in”
I boldly answered entered then
My Residence within

A Rapid footless Guest
To offer whom a Chair
Were as impossible as hand
A Sofa to the Air

No Bone had He to bind Him
His Speech was like the Push
Of numerous Humming Birds at once
From a superior Bush

His Countenance a Billow
His Fingers, as He passed
Let go a music as of tunes
Blown tremulous in Glass

He visited still flitting
Then like a timid Man
Again, He tapped ’twas flurriedly
And I became alone



Poem The Wind tapped like a tired Man - Emily Dickinson
