First Snow Of 2011 In Hardy

What could be a more lovely start for our New Year then our first snow fall! It is as if a  breath of fresh air has passed over the whole area. The beautiful blanket of snow covering the area brings a smile to all those who can enjoy it.  Below is two poems from Robert Frost. We invite you to use the comment section below to post your own poetry about snow and even add a picture with it too!

First Snow Lake Sherwood


Dust of Snow
by Robert Frost (1923)

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.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening 
 by Robert Frost (1923)

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

    I was on a snowshoeing backpacking expedition in the rockies a few years back and it snowed for the the entire 4 day that I was in the back country. The pine trees looked like they had been dipped in cake frosting. It was truely magical. Walking during our recent 1st snow in Hardy was the same. The air was crisp and sharp and the snow was blowing in the blue sky sunshine filled morning. The billowing snow looked like jem dust in the breeze. What a wonderful time it was walking Khatru anticipating the soon to be had coffee. I kept my store closed these past 2 snow days and enjoyed music, hot coffee and my friends as they came to the back door to visit and hang around. made to order moments and picture perfect!
