A Poem for Hill Country: THE SNOW MAN by Wallace Stevens
With bitter cold air settled over the Hill Country and with old snow lingering on the ground for days (old bones waiting for some new skin?), I couldn't resist selecting Wallace Stevens' wonderful short poem, The Snow Man, for today's poem. This poem has been called the best short poem in the English language by some --- and I leave it to you to determine what the words of the poem mean if anything. Click here to read The Snow Man.
