Transcript of A THUNDERSTORM
BY EMILY DICKINSON
The wind begun 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 all 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 the 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 father's house,
Just quartering a tree.
the title of the poem is telling you what it is going to be about and explains what is happening.
the author is describing what her opinion is on what a thunderstorm is going to do.
her wording and punctuation is very interesting and makes you think.

MEANING OF THE TITLE
The grass moved with the wind,
With tunes in low sound,-
God flung a thunderstorm at the earth,
That menaced the sky.
The leaves fell from trees,
And started to pile up on the ground,
The dust did blow itself in air as though as if it was being scooped,
And covered the road.
The wagons rushed on the streets,
And the thunder came slow,
The lightning flashed in the sky,
Then claw-like lightning striked in the sky.
The birds were scared in their nests,
The cattle hurried quickly to barns,
The rain came like it was one giant drop,
And then, as if the hands.
That held the dams with water,
The water covered the sky,
But was upon my dad house,
Just quartering a tree.
