“Pine tree tops” by Gary Snyder

In the blue night 
frost haze, the sky glows 
with the moon 
pine tree tops 
bend snow-blue, fade 
into sky, frost, starlight. 
The creak of boots. Rabbit tracks, deer tracks, 
what do we know.

writing thesis statement for this poem, 

for example: Snyder builds his poem on nouns to give power to the “thing” in his scene.
