Come In

Rating: 3.9

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.

The last of the light of the sun

Brilliant as is the poetry of Frost, this one deceptively simple though more sinister than it appears...

In the last stanza, Frost delivers the profound message for humanity with amazing simplicity.

A lyric poem of deceptive simplicity. He wanted to gaze at the stars, not enter the wood.
