Detailed Summary
 Dust of Snow’ is an awful poem of nature by Robert Frosty
In this poem a symbolic incident is present .The poet is
standing under a hemlock tree. He is in a sad mood. He
thinks that his day has been lost then a crow shakes the
hemlock tree-and the dust of snow falls on him. This little
incident brings about a sudden change in the state of the
poet’s mind. His mood has ‘changed. He thinks that it has
saved the rest of his day and gets busy with his work like
the crow.
1.Flakes of Snow:
 It was a day of winter. It was
snowing all around. A fine dust of
snow had covered the tops of the
trees. A hemlock tree was
standing there. The top of the
hemlock tree was all covered with
the fine dust of snow. The poet
was standing under that hemlock
tree.
2. Sudden Arrival of a Crow, Falling of Snow
Dust on Poet:
 A crow from nowhere came and
perched on the top of the tree.
The sudden movement of the
crow made the dust of snow fall
down. The flakes of snow fell on
the poet who was standing
under that tree.
Simple Natural Happening:
 The arrival of a crow and its
sitting on the hemlock tree is
just an ordinary happening.
There is nothing great about the
incident. On the other hand, the
crow stands for an ill omen and
the hemlock the tree is
associated with poison. But
these seemingly simple things of
nature leave a deep impact on
the mind and mood of the poet.
4. Change in the Mood: This ordinary incident leaves a deep
impact on the poet. So far it has been a
very dull and disappointing day for the
poet. The day has not gone well for
him. But the falling of the flakes and
dust of snow on him are welcome signs
for the poet. His mood changes for the
better and his spirits are uplifted. Now
he realises that the whole day has not
gone waste. Those moments while he is
enjoying the fall of snow dust on him
are his happy moments. They lift up
his mood and gladden his heart. Now
he realises that at least some part of
the day has been spent happily. In
the end, satisfaction replaces
regret.
