Across the lines of straighter darker trees. I like to think some boy's been swinging them. But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay. As ice-storms do. Often you must have seen them. As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel. Soon the sun's warmth makes them shed crystal shells. Shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust—. You'd think the inner dome of heaven had fallen.

That would be good both going and coming back. One could do worse than be a swinger of birches. Source: The Poetry of Robert Frost More Poems by Robert Frost.
