Wednesday poetry break: It's snowing, and the sky is falling!

I love snow, but I don't love driving in it. Actually, that's not true. If all the idiots on the road would stay home I wouldn't mind it at all.

Oh, sorry 'bout that bit of bitterness. The first snowfall this morning meant my morning commute was 2 hours. That put me in a kinda sour mood. Let's get right to the poetry, shall we?

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.

— Robert Frost
