Hmmm... I need to teach Frost in about a month. This is an interesting verse and not one I've thought about before.Lovely photos, too.Also, can I talk you into joining us for the Writing Game this time?
I usually don't like Frost very much but this is a good one indeed. I like the imagery too. Lovely :)
I like the snowy photo. Had to look twice at the fire, though :-) Could do with a nice fire today. Our heating has just broken down and the temperature is 17 degrees!!! Aaargh!Don't much like either of Frost's methods. But then, I'm a wimp--especially today.
Lovely photos. I feel all shivery now and am off to find a cozy blanket and some thick socks. Mmmm...maybe I should light a fire...
First off, beautiful.Secondly, I laughed when I saw this poem, as it's been floating through my brain for the last few weeks. I'm betting on ice, personally...
They're both such beautiful destructive forces, for sure. Hey, is that recent "ice"? Lucky! It is WAY to warm here for January!
:) I like reading this one
I've always loved that poem. Cool pictures, too.
I'm happy I recognized this poem a few lines in. Makes me feel smart. :)
Well....living on the prairies of Western Canada, I've learnt that no matter how cold it gets, you can put on enough clothes to stay warm, but if it gets too hot, you can take all the clothes off you want, but you will still be hot. I'll take cool :-)
That is an interesting verse and leaves something to think about. I love the photos that illustrate it as well.
here i sit in my toasty house with the cat purring by my side ... and ice falls in the southland ... tick tick tick against the window panes.
I was just visiting Lisa at A Food Snob and thought of you. Here is a link to her post describing a meal:http://thefoodsnob.typepad.com/the_food_snob/2008/01/a-birthday-to-r.html?cid=97456306#comment-97456306I am not sure it that will come up okay, if not, I can email you tomorrow when I am on the other computer.
beautifully done, and I've never read that poem before, so thank you for sharing it
