Robert Frost

(March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963 / San Francisco)

A Soldier


He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it plowed the dust.

    The preceding comments are trash. This is a moving and effective poem. I know, because I read it at the funeral of my father, a soldier. Let us respect our soldiers at arms and be grateful they moved our great poets to such verse. (Report) Reply
