Poem Title:  A Narrow Fellow In The Grass

Poem Category:  General Poems

Poet:  Emily Dickinson

Poet Biography: 
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was an American lyrical poet. Strangely, due to her extreme views on her own privacy, only seven of her approx. 1800 poems were published during her lifetime.

A narrow fellow in the grass
Occasionally rides;
You may have met him,--did you not,
His notice sudden is.

The grass divides as with a comb,
A spotted shaft is seen;
And then it closes at your feet
And opens further on.

He likes a boggy acre,
A floor too cool for corn.
Yet when a child, and barefoot,
I more than once, at morn,

Have passed, I thought, a whip-lash
Unbraiding in the sun,--
When, stooping to secure it,
It wrinkled, and was gone.

Several of nature's people
I know, and they know me;
I feel for them a transport
Of cordiality;

But never met this fellow,
Attended or alone,
Without a tighter breathing,
And zero at the bone.
