When the Weather Outside is Frightful...

It makes me think of my favorite Robert Frost poem, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening."

20 NUPoints (Nelson Universe Points) for commenting about the poem or about piece of writing you think about in winter weather.


  1. I think about a book called Sparrow Lake by Carol Beach York. It's a book that my mom had from when she was around my age so it was fun to read it just so that I could get a picture of the differences between literature then and now.

    The story is based on a girl who is from New York City and lives with her Aunt Alice. Every summer they had a vacation home in a place called Sparrow Lake. Then one year Aunt Alice decided to live at Sparrow Lake all year long. So the girl naturally enrolls in school there and starts her life. And she falls in love... and the aunt doesn't like the guy at all.
    This goes on for a while into winter and that's when the girl (Liddie) realizes how much more beautiful a place is in the winter than the summer with the snow and ice.

    It's a short story and I loved it!

  2. In winter weather, I think about Christmas trees. Therefore in winter weather I think about "The Tale of Three Trees." This book is a traditional folktale retold by Angela Elwell Hunt and Illustrated by Tim Jonke. This story is about how three trees want to each be a particular thing. One wants to hold treasure and so on. Each of the three trees get what they want in a surprising way having to do with Jesus.

  3. I usually think of Spring in Winter weather, just as a reminder of the fact that it will be warm again. Sometimes, in Winter weather I think of the poem 'Nothing Gold Can Stay' by Robert Frost, because I think of how the springtime (which to me, is gold) fades into winter eventually. Hence, nothing gold can stay.

  4. I have to say that I think of To Kill a Mockingbird because it's nice and warm in Maycomb, and
    I like the warmth!!!

  5. I think that I think of the song Frosty the Snowman. I think of the lyrics to that. I don't know why, but cold weather makes me want to use my beautiful singing voice.

  6. I think about the song Jingle Bells. I love winter so any winter/Christmas song is a good one for me
