Only yesterday

SPRING POOLS (1928) Robert Frost

Those pools that,

though in forests,

still reflect

The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them,

chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,

But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.
The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods-
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.


  1. What an amazing phot! I love the reflection. Thanks for stopping by my blog- and for the lovely comments. I'm not sure if I';m going too far but I am letting the Spirit lead me in the way He wants me to go.
    Have a super Friday!
