SNOW POEMS. RAB on the You Knew What I Meant blog listed several good poems about snow on a day when the storm of the century was expected to arrive in Connecticut:
“Snowbound,” by John Greenleaf Whittier
Emily Dickinson… “It sifts from leaden sieves—”
Edna St. Vincent Millay… “The Snow Storm”
Ralph Waldo Emerson… “The Snow Storm” (RAB comments: “this one has one of my absolute favorite last lines!”—and I agree it’s wonderful)
Wallace Stevens… “The Snow Man” (which is a favorite that I have posted on)
Billy Collins… “Snow Day”
The storm gave us about a foot of snow, but left about two and a half feet in Massachusetts.
