Dickinsons uses a plethora of laguage technique to evoke the devastating
storm. The mood changes quite allot of times. The mood in the beginning was
a suspenseful mood however the mood develops into a ominous and painful
mood in halfway and concludes with a melancholy and solemn mood

Cited by the English journalist Paul Johnson as saying the last word on the
myth of global warming and much else besides. ("A time for American poets
to speak out in warning" The Spectator - 21 February 2009). But he does say
previously "If I could only have one American poet on my desert island I
would surely pick Emerald Emily, as I call her, because she shines so
brightly and greenly" so not all senior comment then :-)

I interpreted "Emerald Ghost" as being the greenish air that appears before
a tornado that is unwanted , so they lock everything up.

For a haunting recount, listen to the poem set to a song for mezzo/soprano
and piano by Aaron Copland. On "Song of America" by mezzo soprano Jan
DeGaeatani. Very amazing!

I especially like how she compares the wind that announces the approach of
a storm to a bugle, an instrument that was at one point often used to warn
or announce something. What I did not fully comprehend was line six, about
the "Emerald Ghost." If someone could share their thoughts on this that'd
be great!

I interpreted this poem that it was describing a storm is on it's way. It
said "the rivers where the houses ran" and "the bell within the steeple
wild" and lastly "we barred the windows and the doors" It's as if they
were preparing themselves for a strong storm. Some type of natural disaster
that could destroy them physically, emotionally and spiritually. I also
thought it could have been talking about how a she went through a difficult
time and she compared her feelings to a raging storm. Metaphorically
speaking of course. I felt as though she did a good job comparing herself
to nature. You just had to read between the lines in order to see things as
she perceived them.
