Researching my ancestry I found out interesting information. Emily Dickinson is my Sixth cousin. What does that mean? My 9th great grandfather, Nathaniel Dickinson, Sr. who emigrated to America in 1633 was Emily's 7th great grandfather.

A Bird, came down the Walk

 

BY EMILY DICKINSON

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, plashless as they swim.
