sodden pasture lane.Her pleasure will not let me stay.She talks and I am fain to list She s glad the birds are gone away,She s glad her simple worsted greyIs silver now with clinging mist.The

and that Frost encouraged Thomas to write and publish his own poetry too There is something unnerving about that connection for me, perhaps just the sense of how long Frost s ad Robert Frost wrote some stunning and thought provoking poems Almost everyone has heard of Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening or The Road Not Taken , but one of my all time favorites is Desert Places The last vers Robert Frost has the most beautiful poetry My dad used to read to me from this book every night before bed and it has been a fovorite ever since When I was little my favorite one was The pasture Now I love Reluctance OUT through the fields and the woods And over the walls I have wended I have climbed the hills of view And looked at the world, and descended I have come by the highway home, 5 And lo,

and my favorite poem will always be The Road Not Taken And I, I took the road less traveled by and that has made all the difference RF Oh, if there were only the words to express how I feel about Frost There aren t the right words nor near enough However, I do enjoy reading his poems They buoy me I am usually a lover of short poems, yet, even in his longer poems a line or two will
