    Frost’s best poems carry their own inner music.
    His gift as an observer is to become part of nature without ever wishing to intrude into what he is describing.
    This humility in the face of a force that Frost feels to be greater than himself has never been better expressed than in the last verse of this remarkable poem, which ranks with Hardy’s The Darkling Thrush that may well have inspired it. (Report) Reply
