Robert Lee Frost

(1874-1963)

  • 'Out, Out–'
       The buzz-saw snarled and rattled in the yard
  • A Boundless Moment
       He halted in the wind, and--what was that
  • A Brook In The City
       The firm house lingers, though averse to square
  • A Considerable Speck
       A speck that would have been beneath my sight
  • A Dream Pang
       I had withdrawn in forest, and my song
  • A Hillside Thaw
       To think to know the country and now know
  • A Hundred Collars
       Lancaster bore him--such a little town,
  • A Line-Storm Song
       The line-storm clouds fly tattered and swift.

       I have wished a bird would fly away,

       There's a patch of old snow in a corner

       Dust always blowing about the town,

       Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
  • A Servant to Servants
       I didn't make you know how glad I was
  • A Soldier
       He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
  • A Time to Talk
       When a friend calls to me from the road
  • A Winter Eden
       A winter garden in an alder swamp,
  • Acceptance
       When the spent sun throws up its rays on cloud

       I have been one acquainted with the night.
  • After Apple Picking
       My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree

       Before man came to blow it right

       For every parcel I stoop down to seize
  • Atmosphere
       Winds blow the open grassy places bleak;

       The bear puts both arms around the tree above her

       There were three in the meadow by the brook

       Something inspires the only cow of late
  • Death of the Hired Man, The
       Mary sat musing on the lamp-flame at the table
  • Demiurge's Laugh, The
       It was far in the sameness of the wood;
  • Design
       I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
  • Devotion
       The heart can think of no devotion
  • Door in the Dark, The
       In going from room to room in the dark,
  • Dust in the Eyes
       If, as they say, some dust thrown in my eyes
  • Dust of Snow
       The way a crow
  • Evening in a Sugar Orchard
       From where I lingered in a lull in march

       You were forever finding some new play.
  • Fear, The
       A lantern light from deeper in the barn

       Blood has been harder to dam back than water.

       The Fisherman's swapping a yarn for a yarn
