Looking For a Sunset Bird in Winter ~Robert Frost~

The west was getting out of gold,
The breath of air had died of cold,
When shoeing home across the white,
I thought I saw a bird alight.

In summer when I passed the place
I had to stop and lift my face;
A bird with an angelic gift
Was singing in it sweet and swift.

No bird was singing in it now.
A single leaf was on a bough,
And that was all there was to see
In going twice around the tree.

From my advantage on a hill
I judged that such a crystal chill
Was only adding frost to snow
As gilt to gold that wouldn’t show.

A brush had left a crooked stroke
Of what was either cloud or smoke
From north to south across the blue;
A piercing little star was through.

  1. Stunning – should be on a holiday card. Christmas, New Year’s, or perhaps on a blank notecard. i’d buy it in a heartbeat.

  2. Thank you, I love that field so much. It’s only a 5 minute walk from my house and I go there all the time. During the summer I stand at the gate (my son calls it the cow wall) and gaze out. I feel like I’m in a Country Time lemonade scene. The breeze, the tall grass swaying back and forth, the sun setting, and the warm air on my skin. Winter is not as much fun there but it is still beautiful.
