The Art of Robert Frost. Frost attended both Dartmouth College and Harvard, but did not graduate from either school. He bore a green-white stick in his hand, And, for all burden, care. There we bowed us in the burning, As the sun's right worship is, To pick where none could miss them A thousand orchises; For though the grass was scattered, Yet every second spear Seemed tipped with wings of color, That tinged the atmosphere. A Boy's Will in glassine, Mountain Interval in dustjacket. Storytelling has a long history in the United States, particularly in New England, and Frost wanted to tap into this history to emphasize poetry as an oral art. And God has taken a flower of gold And broken it, and used therefrom The mystic link to bind and hold Spirit to matter till death come.

Come, be my love in the wet woods, come, Where the boughs rain when it blows. Reading it is both humbling because even at the beginning of his career, you can see his special genius at work and inspiring because you get to witness how even a poet of incredible talent wrote some rather ho-hum, mediocre verse to go along with the more impressive stuff.

As so often with 'points' it comes down to minutiae like the number of petals on a flower. The mower in the dew had loved them thus, By leaving them to flourish, not for us, Nor yet to draw one thought of ours to him. But the snow was gone A long time ago, And the body he wore Nigh gone with the snow. The closest thing to a female equivalent would be a girly girl. Come, be my love in the wet woods; come, Where the boughs rain when it blows.

Tan cloth, gilt on brown title label. But so with all, from babes that play At hide-and-seek to God afar, So all who hide too well away Must speak and tell us where they are. I found it curious that a middle-aged man would give this title to his first collection of poetry. Are you dumb because you know me not, Or dumb because you know? Trees function as boundary spaces, where moments of connection or revelation become possible. The bridegroom thought it little to give A dole of bread, a purse, A heartfelt prayer for the poor of God, Or for the rich a curse; But whether or not a man was asked To mar the love of two By harboring woe in the bridal house, The bridegroom wished he knew. The light of heaven falls whole and white And is not shattered into dyes, The light for ever is morning light; The hills are verdured pasture-wise; The angel hosts with freshness go, And seek with laughter what to brave;-- And binding all is the hushed snow Of the far-distant breaking wave. To the Thawing Wind audio He calls on change through the violence of the elements.

But when in battle the foe were met, The Douglas found him sore beset, With only strength of the fighting arm For one more battle passage yet-- And that as vain to save the day As bring his body safe away-- Only a signal deed to do And a last sounding word to say. My November Guest He is in love with being misunderstood. I will conclude with a couple of fine lyrics, one about the dead of winter, and one about the thaw that heralds the spring.

I knew not well myself; Perhaps it was something about the heat of the sun, Something, perhaps, about the lack of sound — And that was why it whispered and did not speak. The leaves are all dead on the ground, Save those that the oak is keeping To ravel them one by one And let them go scraping and creeping Out over the crusted snow, When others are sleeping. He was jealous of all other poets. Storm Fear When the wind works against us in the dark, And pelts with snow The lowest chamber window on the east, And whispers with a sort of stifled bark, The beast, 'Come out! When that was, the soft mist Of my regret hung not on all the land, And I was glad for thee, And glad for me, I wist. Like many good writers, Frost is easy to read, but also not content with an unexamined life.

The leaves are all dead on the ground, Save those that the oak is keeping To ravel them one by one And let them go scraping and creeping Out over the crusted snow, When others are sleeping. The fact is the sweetest dream that labor knows — My long scythe whispered and left the hay to make. He knew that Pound's review would be crucial in influencing other critics in England, but he disagreed with Pound's assessment of his poetry as simple and untutored. No, not vainly there did I dwell, Nor vainly listen all the night long. The line is, in turn, a quote from in Lapponia 1675. For the grapes' sake, if they were all, Whose leaves already are burnt with frost, Whose clustered fruit must else be lost-- For the grapes' sake along the wall.
