A Brook In The City

Rating: 3.1

The farmhouse lingers, though averse to square
With the new city street it has to wear
A number in. But what about the brook
That held the house as in an elbow-crook?
I ask as one who knew the brook, its strength
And impulse, having dipped a finger length
And made it leap my knuckle, having tossed
A flower to try its currents where they crossed.
The meadow grass could be cemented down
From growing under pavements of a town;

The apple trees be sent to hearth-stone flame.

Excellent as Frost always is... poignant in its portrayal of nature suffering at the hands of Man.

Such a heartwarming poem. There is a price we pay for all this modernization. And some time it is more than just the loss of natural beauty.

WoW! ! Robert Frost just made me feel teary-eyed sympathy for the plight of a brook that once ran merrily under the sun until city sprawl pushed it underground into the smelly dank darkness of the sewer system. Actually I know how he feels- -urban sprawl has robbed me of all the desert around here that I used to ride for hours in all directions- now mile after mile of housing.
