My free write today is going to be a few Robert Frost poems about snow/ winter.
Dust of Snow
BY ROBERT FROST
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 here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
An Old Man’s Winter Night
by Robert Frost
All out-of-doors looked darkly in at him Through the thin frost, almost in separate stars, That gathers on the pane in empty rooms. What kept his eyes from giving back the gaze Was the lamp tilted near them in his hand. What kept him from remembering what it was That brought him to that creaking room was age. He stood with barrels round him—at a loss. And having scared the cellar under him In clomping there, he scared it once again In clomping off;—and scared the outer night, Which has its sounds, familiar, like the roar Of trees and crack of branches, common things, But nothing so like beating on a box. A light he was to no one but himself Where now he sat, concerned with he knew what, A quiet light, and then not even that. He consigned to the moon—such as she was, So late-arising—to the broken moon As better than the sun in any case For such a charge, his snow upon the roof, His icicles along the wall to keep; And slept. The log that shifted with a jolt Once in the stove, disturbed him and he shifted, And eased his heavy breathing, but still slept. One aged man—one man—can't keep a house, A farm, a countryside, or if he can, It's thus he does it of a winter night.
1. You’ll need a flat area for the snowman. And you’ll need access to a spot which has a nice big patch of snow to make big snowballs with.
2. Gather a handful of snow. Pack it tightly with your two hands, shaping it into a ball.
3. Place the ball on the ground. Roll the ball along the snowy patch. As you roll, the ball will pick up more snow and will grow larger and larger as the snow from the ground sticks to it. Keep rolling until the ball reaches the desired lower body size. A height of 1 foot to three feet (or more) is recommended.
4. Make another snowball. Only this time, make it a little bit smaller. This will become the snowman’s middle section.
5. Make another snowball. This last one must be smaller still, as it will form the snowman’s head. When done, stack the three snowballs up from largest to smallest, being careful to pack tightly and balance them so they won’t fall down. As you go, smooth the sides out as best you can.
6. When all the balls are in place, pack some snow between the layers. This will make sure they stick together. If your snowman seems wobbly, you can stabilize it by poking a long skinny stick straight down through the top of its head, like threading a shish kabob. Cover the hold in its head with more snow.
7. Place a carrot in the middle of the head to act as a nose. Use buttons, pebbles or etc and place them above the carrots to represent the eyes. Use a row of pebbles, coal or etc., to show a dazzling smile or a grumpy frown beneath the carrot nose.
8. Add some sticks for the arms. Top off the snowman with a hat and place a nice scarf around its neck.
9. Take some pictures if you like. Your snowman will hang around at least a few days and even longer if it’s very cold.
10. Enjoy his company.
The worst snowstorm I can think of right now happened back in 2007-2008. It snowed about 8 inches or more knocking out all power. We were out of power for about 5 days and we couldn’t even get out of our driveway for at least 2 days. It was terrible. So far we haven’t had one that bad that I remember.
Falling, Falling, Falling from high above the world.
As I near earth I can feel the temperature change overcome me.
I see all my brothers and sisters falling quickly to the ground.
Some are getting pushed by the wind and some are just slowly drifting.
I land on a piece of glass but only for a moment until I melt away.
Day 7: The Abominable Snowman is an ape-like creature said to inhabit the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet. Write a story about seeing the Abominable Snowman.
One day my boyfriend and I decided to go on a trip to the Himalayan. We got invited to go on this tour with another group of couples. We started at the bottom of the mountain and hiked all the way to the top. About half way up the mountain we split up into two groups. it was me, my boyfriend and another couple. As we were walking up the mountain the tour guide was explaining the stories that have taken place such as a huge avalanche that happened a few weeks back and also sightings of The Abominable Snowman. Intrigued by this story my boyfriend and i decided to wonder off in search of this creature. As we neared the top of the hill we heard a loud groan. We were starting to get a bit scared. We took slow steeps forward, camera in hand don’t forget, to the top. As we got to the top there he was standing no more that 2 feet away. I quickly snapped a picture. Just then he turned around and started running after us. We turned and fell and rolled all the way down. At the bottom everyone was asking us what happened but when we told them they didnt believe us. As they say picture speak louder than words
