  1. Thanks for sharing… Robert Frost rocks! I have “Poetry for Young People” by Robert Frost illustrated by Henri Sorensen on my book shelf and continue to use it when talking ‘Poetry’ with kids of all ages. ❤

    • He has a clarity that most poetry lacks. I have always liked his poems. There’s a reason he’s was our local poet laureate. I think even dead he is STILL our poet laureate. No one else gave us pictures of the world in which we live, heavy with trees and stone fences and winter snow.

    • It was evening, so I’m assuming it was just around sunset. A snowy night is often very bright with that white sky and white ground. And in fact, it really did snow last night. not a lot, but enough to make the world very bright.

      Robert Frost was New England’s own poet. He had a knack for capturing our little woodsy world. We have a portrait of him (taken by Alfred Eisenstadt) downstairs.
