Dust of Snow by Robert Frost
"Dust of Snow" is a poem written by Robert Frost. This poem is quite interesting for several reasons. Why did the snow make Frost happy? Why the crow? Why a hemlock tree (known for being poisoness). Many questions! He could be happy because now he knows how to solve his problem (using hemlock). Or, it could be that even though there are bad things in the world there are still things beautiful (like snow).

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.
