52 Poems: Week 5 Robert Frost

The Ravens won the Superbowl today so I wanted to choose a poem that wasn't "The Raven."

Dust of Snow
Painting by Sophy White
By Robert Frost

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

I'm sure Poe doesn't give a lick about football, but if you like sports (like I do) you might want to check out my neglected sports blog Throwing Cookies.

  1. I have a special sweet spot for Robert Frost. He was once a teacher at my alma mater Middlebury College in Vermont. We were surrounded by his spirit, especially at the Bread Loaf Campus. A beautiful poem!
