The

by
Emily
Dickinson

move
faster

find
shelter
.

with

is
about
when
a
storm
comes
people
hurry
to
get
home
and
lightning
flashes
in
the
sky. The
lightning
looks
like
a
giant
bird
coming
down.
The poem
The wind began to rock the grass
with threatening tunes and low,-
He flung a menace at the Earth,
A menace at the sky.

The leaves unhooked themselves from trees
And started abroad;
The dust did scoop itself like hands
And throw away the road.

The wagons quickened on the streets,
The thunder hurried slow;
The lightning showed a yellow beak,
And then a livid claw.

The birds put up bars to nests,
The cattle fled to barns;
There came one drop of giant rain,
And then, as if the hands

That held the dams had parted hold,
The waters wrecked the sky,
But overlooked my fathers house, Just quartering a tree.

Evidence and reasoning# 1
My first piece of evidence is in stanza 3 line # 1
. '' The wagons quickened on

the streets.''
This is because the people don't want to get caught in the storm so they are hurrying home.
Evidence and reasoning #2
My
second
piece
of
evidence
is
found
in
stanza
#
4
in
lines
13
and
14
.
It
says
that

''The birds put up the bars to nests, The cattle fled to

barns''.
This
is
saying
that
the
animals
are
finding
shelter
away
from
the
storm
.
Poetry terms
Personification
: ''He flung a menace at the Earth''(1,3)
This is referring to the storm as a person that is throwing things.
''The leaves unhooked themselves from trees''(2,5)
This is implying that the leaves pulled themselves off the trees as though they are people.
''The dust did scoop itself like hands''(2,7)
This is saying that the dust picked itself up
''The waters wrecked the sky''(5,18).
The water is destroying the sky or ruining it.
Oxymoron:
'' The thunder
hurried slow
''(3,10)
Imagery:
"The wind began to rock the grass"(1,1)
