Dust of Snow



The way a crow

Shook down on me

The dust of snow

From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart

A change of mood

And saved some part

Of a day I had rued.

Hindi Translation


जिस तरीके से एक कवा

मुझ पर टूट पड़ा

(मुझ पर धूल मिला गया)

बर्फ की धूल/टुकड़े

हेमलाक का पेड़ से।

मेरा दिल दिया है

(मेरा दिल को दिया है)

मूड का बदलाव

और कुछ हिस्सा बचा दिया

एक दिन के लिए मैं पछतावा था ।
