Homework Help: English

Posted by Franco on Thursday, January 21, 2010 at 3:35am.

Can you check if my rephrasing of Emily Dickinson's poem (The wind tapped like a tired man") is correct?
1) The wind tapped (or hit his fingers lightly) like a tired man (on the poet's door??) and she, like a host, invited him to enter
2) To offer him a chair was as impossible as to hand a sofa to the air since the wind was invisible.It was rapid, had no feet and no body to bind him
3) His speech his compared to the "push" (singing) of many humming birds coming form a superior bush
His finger produce a music similar to the tremulous sound blown into the glass.
The wind visited her shortly ("still flitting") and then like a timid man again tapped and left her alone ("twas flurriedly" ?? How can I rephrase this?). She felt alone again
Thank you
