Silver hue

I've tried the moon titled in air 
Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster 
As you might try a jewel in your hair 
She sat quietly deaf to the river
Shadows line along the old rocking chair
Rippling chords and running deep 
Hidden in the darkness and shiver 
Fiddling crickets with a thunderous clatter 
I push forward these bones of stone 
Amongst a small opening and unfold toward home  
*****
I've tried the moon titled in air 
Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster 
As you might try a jewel in your hair.
(Robert Frost)
