A Patch of Old Snow / Robert Frost

A Patch of Old Snow

There’s a patch of old snow in a corner
     That I should have guessed
Was a blow-away paper the rain
     Had brought to rest.

It is speckled with grime as if
     Small print overspread it,
The news of a day I’ve forgotten –
     If I ever read it.

Robert Frost (1874-1963)
from Mountain Interval, 1916
