Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening By Robert Frost Whose woods these are I think I know.His house is in the village, though;He will not see me stopping hereTo watch his woods fill up with snow.

Summer Stars by Carl Sandburg Bend low again, night of summer stars.So near you are, sky of summer stars,So near, a long-arm man can pick off stars,Pick off what he wants in the sky bow,So near you are, summer stars,So near, strumming, strumming,So lazy and hum-strumming From Smoke and Steel (Harcourt, Brace and Howe, 1920).Continue reading “Poem of the Day – April 24, 2020”
