"Snow-flakes" By henry wadsworth longfellow

Summary

From the clouds in the sky the snow falls slowly and quietly onto the ground of the forests and fields. Although clouds are usually pretty and divine, sadness can make them show a different expression that shows it's grief. This poem is about the sky; This poem is about the sky's sadness and the snow that it once hoarded and now let it go.

Annotations

I think that the first stanza is strictly literal and shows an image of a snowy world. However, the second stanza describes that the sky is sad, and that the snow is the sky's way of expressing it's emotion. The third stanza reminds the reader that this poem is about the sky itself, and how the sky is sad. It also explains that the sky can only hold in it's sadness for so long before it falls to the ground, and snow covers the land below.
