Birdie

The cutest winter birdie. #thankstarget #fivedollar


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 had rued.



Encourage one another,
Donna

  1. I was going to sit back on my heels and let someone else post - I am often your early bird here. But I cannot hold back -- I love love love this little birdie. I have a fondness for decorative birdies. It's true.

    I've said it before, many of us QLCS folks have - but thank you again for posting lovely poems. I feel richer for it. This one especially resonates with me as I was watching closely a crow (a big fella) near the train tracks, hopping about and making his funny noises at us.

    No snow here yet -- but it's cold enough to have some. I'm happy to wait :-)

    My favorite winter poem. Thank you for posting it. Many years ago I had to look up the word rued in the dictionary because I didn't know what it meant and found that it means regretted. I love the thought that this crow turned Robert Frost's day around for him. He was able to view the simplest things in life with such eloquence.

    Lovely poem…cutie pie birdie standing before the Boucher Motto…made me think:
    "To everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
    There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
    And a time to every purpose, under Heaven"
    The Byrds
    love and prayers, jep

    Love the poem. Have to disagree with Kid President to say "Very cool, Robert Frost!!" :)

    1. Mary, I will often say out loud when something bugs me "Not Cool, Robert Frost" ala Kid President -- and have gotten the strangest looks! I've had to reign myself in :-)

  8. Love Robert Frost. I like your blog. You make us think. Are you still doing your book study on Dietrich Bonhoeffer? I would probably not have read that book if it hadn't been for your blog.
