A Peck of Gold

Rating: 4.7
Dust always blowing about the town,
Except when sea-fog laid it down,
And I was one of the children told
Some of the blowing dust was gold.

All the dust the wind blew high
Appeared like god in the sunset sky,
But I was one of the children told
Some of the dust was really gold.

Such was life in the Golden Gate:
Gold dusted all we drank and ate,
And I was one of the children told,
'We all must eat our peck of gold.'

I was surprised that Robert Frost had written this... at first. Then I realized I was more accustomed to his poetry that was from an older man's point of view, usually set in a rural setting- -this was from his childhood and from the point of view of a man looking back at his childhood and finding moments of innocence that might have brought a whimsical smile to his face.

Such was life in the Golden Gate: Gold dusted all we drank and ate, - There is always a kind of loss for whatever gains we get... We don't mind the air pollution when we badly need the material things in life. A very impressive poem by the well-known R.Frost.

Like to quote - All the dust the wind blew high Appeared like god in the sunset sky, But I was one of the children told Some of the dust was really gold.
