Poetry and Miscellany

  • Poem

    Men say they know many things;
    But lo! they have taken wings—
    The arts and sciences,
    And a thousand appliances;
    The wind that blows
    Is all that any body knows.

    ~ Henry David Thoreau

    (in context)

New Links, etc.

For today’s poem, I chose another from one of the greatest and most popular American poets who ever lived, Robert Frost, and I chose a short poem of his with which I couldn’t say I was familiar. Enjoy it however you please.

I have added several links to my blogroll, as you can see. Do check out some of the sites–all of them are well worth the time. Note particularly the link to the Poetry Foundation, which, according to the website, “It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.” A worthy goal, indeed.

Poem: Dust of Snow, by Robert Frost
