what does the poem "Here followes some verses upon the burning of our house" July 10th, 1666 by Anne Bradstreet mean? You can look at the poem elsewhere, but here is an excerpt: In silent night when rest I took, For sorrow near I did not look, I was wakened with thundering noise And Piteous shrieks of frightened voices. That fearful sound of "fire" and "fire," Let no man know is my Desire. I, starting up, the light did spy, And to my God my heart did cry To strengthen me in my Distress And not to leave me homeless. Then coming out beheld a space, The flame consuming my dwelling place.
