Stumbled upon this beautiful poem by Robert Frost –

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.
– Robert Frost

So real and subtle, like the quiet ripples that form when a dragonfly touches the surface of a pond. No metaphor, just simple images and a true-to-the-heart feeling, and it provokes beautiful imagery and emotions. This reminds me that lyric writing should be like this, keep it true, keep it simple, keep it close-to-the-heart.
