A description of the experience

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

The Wind took up the Northern Things
And piled them in the south
Then gave the East unto the West
And opening his mouth
 
The four Divisions of the Earth
Did make as to devour
While everything to corners slunk
Behind the awful power
 
The Wind unto his chambers went
And nature ventured out
Her subjects scattered into place
Her systems ranged about

Again the smoke from dwelling rose
The day abroad was heard
How intimate, a Tempest past
The transport of the bird

The source of the experience
