Dust of Snow (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 rued.


I love Robert Frost for his simplicity and his perfect rhyme/meter. His lines always have a perfect cadence, which elevates the seemingly ordinary topics about which he writes.
