An Old Man's Winter Night Comments

Rating: 3.0
All out of doors looked darkly in at him
Through the thin frost, almost in separate stars,
That gathers on the pane in empty rooms.
What kept his eyes from giving back the gaze

A light he was to no one but himself Wow. What a line. A whole poem in that. Frost's best lines are as hard and round as a marble.

it's a wonderful poem of Robert Frost. The emptiness arising out of the loneliness of an old man is touchingly expressed in this poem. Thanks for posting. Chandan

From the moment we are born we edge to the time we become a forgetful old man who is tied to the present in his hands, his old gnarled hands and he wonders when those hands once young grew so old
