straight down the line

Dust of Snow

I was really excited to do the Poetry Art Visual Assignment¬†for three stars. In general, I don’t really care for poetry. Reading Pablo Neruda in high school was a painful and embarrassing experience. However, I have always had a soft spot for Robert Frost. I really love his poetry partially because I can connect and really visualize what he’s talking about. I spent a lot of time in Vermont growing up and my family still travels up there every year for Christmas. First, I chose a relatively smaller poem that I felt could fit on a poster. The one that stuck out most to me was Dust of Snow. I then started thinking what type of photo would be best to overlay with the poem. I chose an older picture from Billings Farm in Woodstock, Vermont because I felt it captured the shift in mood¬†featured in the poem. The person on the sleigh ride with the horses looks relatively content but contrasts with the worn-down house in the background.
