Poetry Friday – Dust of Snow



Poetry Friday!


Today I woke up to a dusting of snow, so it only seemed fitting to share this favorite poem by Robert Frost:

Dust of Snow

The way a crow

Shook down on me

From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart

A change of mood

Follow link to Poetry Foundation for the rest.


I love this poem and the mood evoked when reading it. Lately, I’ve been returning to more of Mr. Robert Frost’s poetry and find it very satisfying.

This week’s Poetry Friday roundup is at Mainely Write

Enjoy your Friday!

I have been in education for all of my life, in one way or another. After teaching 5th grade at an urban public charter school, I have decided to return to the public schools and to literacy coaching K-5. I also teach and mentor preservice teachers.


  1. I revisit Frost every fall, finding something so comforting in it. He has so many terrific seasonal gems, and this is one of my favorite winter poems.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Mr. Frost never ceases to delight. This is a great reminder to let our moods be changed, even if by some snow down our back!

  3. Well put, Mary! I needed this poem this week! Have a good week!

  4. This is very nice. Dust of snow. Sounds really magical.
