Dust of Snow

Dust of Snow

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

Robert Frost

  2. We have an additional light dusting this morning,on top of a bit of remaining snow from a few days ago.When snow stays around on the ground for awhile,as it has here, it is said to be hanging on for more. In this case, it was so,but it appears we may not get as much as some,like Poor Terry,in Texas.

  4. We are going to get a very heavy dusting today. It is really coming down. It does look beautiful. But I still hate snow. I will entertain myself by baking and making stew today.

  11. We think so alike, Farmchick, and I always love your pics. Isn't Frost great? He's one of my favorites. A few years ago, a trip my family was on took us through the town in which he's buried (Bennington, Vermont) so I was able to visit his grave. My daughter later used a pic we had taken in a report about him.

    Stay warm, my friend.

  12. Very nice words and image. If a dusting though is not enough we've got a surplus of the white stuff here, he says puffing from shoveling all morning. :)

  14. I love Robert Frost! We're having a crazy snow storm right now but it's really beautiful and I'm not leaving the house. It's just me and the kitty until the hubs gets home (although I wish he were home from work today so we could snuggle)

  17. I love your photos and the poem...I think the snow is wonderful, but I don't have to live in it. It has been cold here...for us, that is...and windy. I am used to being outdoors everyday and I find that I have been inside too much lately trying to stay warm!California girls like the sunshine!

  18. The snow really emphasizes the lovely lines of the roof. Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets.

  19. Thanks for sharing this- I've copied it to take to school with me tomorrow. My class does a poem every week, and this week's poem was Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening. I'll share this one tomorrow if we have school- My kids are only 7 and 8 yrs. old, but they love poetry!

  20. Gorgeous! We've had much more than a dust. More like a dump...
    Had to run the snow blower this morning!

  21. Your picture makes probably even the birds too shy to land upon the roof.

    Beautiful.

    Please have you all a good Wednesday.

  25. I love this picture. The barn reminds me of one at my Dad's house. We got a thin layer of ice on top of a light dusting of snow.

  26. I enjoyed reading your blog! Beautiful photos and poem!

    We were skipped over with the snow this time...just a lot of ice!

    Can't wait to read more! You have a new follower!

  28. This is has been a wild and crazy winter with snow, snow and more snow. Your photo is beautiful.

    Florida needs a snow day too. With all the freezing, nasty, wet weather we have been having Mother Nature should at least entertain us with some snow.

    Stay warm.

  30. Hi, I've come late to this post but just want to say your snow photos are beautiful. Light snow glazes everything while still allowing detail of the landscape to show through. I also love your banner photo.

    We got a foot of snow overnight but thankfully it was light and fluffy and easy to shovel.
