    Really it is a very small poem but it has all the power to mesmerize you and keep you reading again and again. (Report) Reply

    The 'way' in the first line is left to us to imagine, or as Shakespeare puts in the Henry V, on your 'imaginary forces work.'
    Drinking hemlock is the way that Socrates chose to die, so beauty and death are deliberately linked here.
    We all have dark moods, and the second stanza speaks of the healing effects of nature.
    Frost in this terrific poem follows the three principles of imagism; no superficial word, direct treatment, and metrical metre rather than mere cadence. (Report) Reply

    I first heard this poem 10 years ago and never knew who wrote it. I don't pretend to understand poetry but this short verse appeals to me. I must find out more about it. (Report) Reply
