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.
