Hawaiian Snowballs

I hear about snow and bitter cold up North. We are also having a cold spell; “ladies who lunch” are promenading their fur coats, taken out of storage for a few days every year. For us, simple people, an occasional sweatshirt suffices. But I thought it was time to repeat this post – to demonstrate that we can also play with snowballs. Enjoy, Beautiful People!

Are you, Beautiful People, watching your woods “fill up with snow”? A great American poet, with an appropriate last name Frost, had, and wrote about it:

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

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.

    I had forgotten this post until I went to look at the beautiful ballet, and then I remembered! Robert Frost is my favorite American poet because I can always understand his poems. My first graders were “required” to memorize Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. They loved doing it, and it amazed their parents who remembered studying, reading, or memorizing the poem when they were in middle school. Memorizing poetry, once part of general curriculum and then gifted and talented curriculum, is sadly going by the wayside. It must not be “on the test.”

    1. Someone up there has decided that rote memory is not conducive to critical thinking; therefore, memorizing had to go. It is a shame, like many other current trends in education.
      Thank you for stopping by and commenting, dear Linda.
