Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed
The speculating rooks at their nests cawed
And saw from elm-tops, delicate as flowers of grass,
What we below could not see, Winter pass.

It is awesome poem edward
Two errors, I'm afraid - corrections: 1. Over the land freckled....... (NOT half freckled) 2. Delicate as flower of grass (NOT a flower of grass) Wonderful short poem
Few words and so a lot said, into the precise way, like to this low form. Great it is stimulating the imagination. 'What in below could of notes see...' - beautiful and real.(10v.) like it very much. Maria Barbara Korynt
