April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate we’ll share some of our favorite excerpts from Frost’s essays, letters, and of course, poems. We’ll also include words from some other favorite poets. Happy NaPoMo, friends in poetry!The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
Excerpted from “Two Tramps in Mud Time” by Robert Frost, from the Pulitzer Prize winning collection A Further Range (Holt, 1936)
