One Step Backward Taken

Robert Frost

 Next Poem          

Not only sands and gravels
Were once more on their travels,
But gulping muddy gallons
Great boulders off their balance
Bumped heads together dully
And started down the gully.
Whole capes caked off in slices.
I felt my standpoint shaken
In the universal crisis.
But with one step backward taken
I saved myself from going.
A world torn loose went by me.
Then the rain stopped and the blowing,
And the sun came out to dry me.

    Really enjoyed that part when "whole capes caked off in slices"! It's like nature showing its power and reminding us how tiny we are in the grand scheme of things đŸŒĻī¸đŸŒŠī¸ Felt very relatable when the sun finally comes out to dry everything, good flow! 😊
