One of Robert Frost’s most appealing children’s poems. The poet depicts a rolling upland meadow in New England just as autumn turns to winter & snow begins to fall. A child & mother are out for a walk & are captivated by a young colt, bewildered & skittish, reacting to his first encounter with falling snow. With striking tableaus, bold shapes, & sumptuous colors, the artist evokes the archetypal New England landscape crisscrossed with stone walls & inhabited by farm animals. The winsome colt, sympathetic child, & playful dog will engage the young reader in this moving poem about caretaking & concern for young creatures. “Unknown situations are not always as frightening as at first they might appear, & a comforting presence is never far away.”
