This poem was very light and easy to read. I personally enjoyed it because
I need to be more like the person in the poem. I tend to dwell on the
little things in life instead of seeing the possible good in them. If I
were having a bad day, something as silly as snow falling on me would have
made me even more upset. This poem put in perspective for me that little
things are not worth getting upset over. I can try to find the joy in
life's little things instead.

This poem reminds me how everyday occurances can sometimes have the power
to boost moods. Finding joy in the simple things is what makes life so
great, and this poem does just that.

I am more of a literal person so I did not get a feeling from this poem.
However, it did allow me to vizualize this crow knocking snow down on a
person. It made me begin to think about snow and the winter season. I
liked the way it flowed, which made it easy to see the picture.

This poem makes me think of times when you are having a bad day or you are
in a bad mood. Something small can happen that will change the course of
the day or your mood. Its moments like in the poem that put life back into
perspective. We need to learn to enjoy and take in the world around us.

I enjoy hearing the sounds of the words in this poem. This poem has a nice
relaxing flow to it. Even, though I enjoyed the sound of this poem I do
not have a strong emotional response to it. When I read this poem it was
not clear what his meaning was. As a very literal person I need more
information...I did not make the connection that snow falling on this
person would make him feel better about his day.

This poem reminds me of finding the silver lining in the clouds. At the
same time as I read this poem I feel sorrow for this man that is made a
little bit happier by something so simple as snow. I can feel the sorrow
from his day. I feel as though he cannot take anymore and will try to find
happiness in the smallest things. I am reminded of myself on a bad day when
I find happiness in something simple.

This poem reminds me of my personal shortcomings...being overwhelmed by
life's menial tasks. This poem serves as a reminder to keep things
positive and in perspective. Reality = things always get done, so take
time to enjoy the little things that make life so grand.

The crow and hemlock are two objects that have bleak characteristics. The
crow has been associated with death for ages, furthermore, crows are black,
a color that we connect to the darker things in life. The hemlock tree is
actually poisonous though not all species are dangerous. So in my humble
opinion, the poem illustrates how quickly someone can have a "change of
mood" when death looms overhead. It shows us how, death, can actually send
a clump of gleaming white hope that will shake us out of our rut.
That's how I see it.
