A Cloud Shadow - Robert Frost

A breeze discovered my open book

And began to flutter the leaves to look

For a poem there used to be on Spring.

I tried to tell her "There's no such thing!"

For whom would a poem on Spring be by?

The breeze disdained to make reply;

And a cloud shadow crossed her face

For fear I would make her miss the place.

"Poets are like baseball pitchers. Both have their moments. The intervals are the tough things.

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.

I hear everything I write. All poetry is to me first a matter of sound.

Most folks are poets. If they were not, some of us would have no one to read what we write. Perhaps a few of us specialize just a little more, that is all.

A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom." Robert Frost
