    (Come In by Robert Frost.) **The poet seemed tempted to some dark corner of life, as all are at some point, but had garnered enough strength to resist such temptation to enter that dark place. BE WARE OF TEMPTATION. (Report) Reply

    The flow of the poem is magnificent, just like a rivulet running with speed in mountainous terrain. A superb poem. Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    Frost’s best poems carry their own inner music.
    His gift as an observer is to become part of nature without ever wishing to intrude into what he is describing.
    This humility in the face of a force that Frost feels to be greater than himself has never been better expressed than in the last verse of this remarkable poem, which ranks with Hardy’s The Darkling Thrush that may well have inspired it.
