    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.

    Robert Frost's poetry deals with New England life and character.You deal with homely situations and your style is simple.The poems often show the poet's unusual power of observing little noticed details of natural objects and rural characters.

    There is something very sensual about this poem, I think. I did a recording of it, if you are interested. http: //www.archive.org/details/RobertFrost-SilkenTent

Best Poem of Robert Frost

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come ...

Come In

As I came to the edge of the woods,
Thrush music -- hark!
Now if it was dusk outside,
Inside it was dark.

Too dark in the woods for a bird
By sleight of wing
To better its perch for the night,
Though it still could sing.

[Hata Bildir]
