The central idea of the poem Dust and Snow written by Robert Frost is that one may have the worst day or time of his life, but a little good thing can make it quite amazing. The crow, the hemlock tree and the dust are some bad signs that normally make the people believe that something wrong is going to happen.
The poet in the poem, I think, is already upset. This is why he comes out of his home to wander in the snow. But a crow shakes and snow falls on him which makes him happy.
The poem gives us the message that one should hope for the best even in the worst. Like negative and negative makes positive in mathematics, similarly, in real life, we can make enjoy in our worst times.
