“Poetry Afternoon”

I return today to the most beautiful Poet, Robert Frost, that I featured last week.

The following Poems come from my book “Robert Frost’s Season” which features the incredible photography of Christopher Burkett.

“In The Winter Woods”

In winter in the woods alone

Against the trees I go.

I mark a maple for my own

And lay the maple low.

At four o’clock I shoulder ax,

And in the afterglow

I link a line of shadowy tracks

Across the tinted snow.

I see for Nature no defeat

On one tree’s overthrow

Or for myself in my retreat

For yet another blow.

“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.
