Atmosphere - Poem by Robert Frost

Inscription for a Garden Wall

Winds blow the open grassy places bleak;
But where this old wall burns a sunny cheek,
They eddy over it too toppling weak
To blow the earth or anything self-clear;
Moisture and color and odor thicken here.
The hours of daylight gather atmosphere.

    All who would desire to be a poet should examine this poem well. This man was blessed to write and thereby be a blessing to others. It flows out of him, it etches its words in the corners of our hearts. (Report) Reply
