A Soldier - Poem by Robert Frost

He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it plowed the dust.

    A very evocative work, that should be read and dissected by students in public schools, there is a romanticism about being a soldier, I feel this work balances that perspective, a great duty that comes to a high price (Report) Reply

    Mr Frost, this poem is amazing. You speak to me, an antiwar activist, and remind me that I am anti-war, not anti-soldier. May God bless.

    And Melia, yes, I know Robert Frost is dead. Its called poetic license. ;)

    The preceding comments are trash. This is a moving and effective poem. I know, because I read it at the funeral of my father, a soldier. Let us respect our soldiers at arms and be grateful they moved our great poets to such verse. (Report) Reply
