To the Thawing Wind

by Robert Frost



Come with rain, O loud Southwester!
Bring the singer, bring the nester;
Give the buried flower a dream;
Make the settled snow-bank steam;
Find the brown beneath the white; But whate'er you do to-night, Bathe my window, make it flow, Melt it as the ice will go; Melt the glass and leave the sticks Like a hermit's crucifix; Burst into my narrow stall; Swing the picture on the wall; Run the rattling pages o'er; Scatter poems on the floor; Turn the poet out of door.

Here’s some “Short Stories” from Demetri Martin’s book, “This Is A Book.”

“The shepherd fell asleep again.  But who could blame him?  He had been counting sheep all day.”

“Everybody knew that you should never provoke a rattlesnake, much less tie it into a bow.  But that didn’t stop Judd.  What did stop him was the rattlesnake.”

“”Neil aimed and fired.  As the duck exploded into tiny bits, the men stared in stunned silence.  Then Walt said, “That’s the third decoy you’ve shot today, you idiot.”“
