    A really Giant Poet.
    He cannot accept the philosophy inside the Poetry as a base. He melt the philosophy or the world to express a understandable Poetry, for sure with philosophy colors or extracts, so a heavy but understandable Poetry.

    It's actually quite astounding how prolific of a writer this man was. I realize now that regardless of any rhyme scheme, any diction, any scene that I wish to incorporate: there's a good chance Frost has already used it.

    I think that this poem means that the world could end in hate or it could just end on its own when the sun burns out like the hate some people have can be really bad and it could force them to blow up on the person that they hate that much or the ice means that they could just keep their cool and ignore the person that they have hate for but if the fire happens it could be really bad.

    I just re-discovered 'Revelation' by Robert Frost thru this website. Someone posted (in 2003) what they thought it meant. To me, it has a very personal meaning - how people put up a 'front' and pretend that everything is okay, and don't let people really get to know them until they are hurting so bad that they have to turn to someone.

    I would urge everyone to write comments about specific Frost poems they like, avoiding generalisations whenever possible.

    The first line of 'For Once, Then, Something' should be:
    'Others taunt me for having knelt at well-curbs' and not 'taught' me as is printed here.

Out, Out

The buzz-saw snarled and rattled in the yard
And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood,
Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.
And from there those that lifted eyes could count
Five mountain ranges one behind the other
Under the sunset far into Vermont.
And the saw snarled and rattled, snarled and rattled,
As it ran light, or had to bear a load.
And nothing happened: day was all but done.
