"In White": Frost's Early Version Of Design

Rating: 3.2

A dented spider like a snow drop white
On a white Heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of lifeless satin cloth -
Saw ever curious eye so strange a sight? -
Portent in little, assorted death and blight
Like the ingredients of a witches' broth? -
The beady spider, the flower like a froth,
And the moth carried like a paper kite.

What had that flower to do with being white,

The blue prunella every child's delight.

What brought the kindred spider to that height? (Make we no thesis of the miller's plight.) What but design of darkness and of night? Design, design! Do I use the word aright? ........touching expression with lofty theme. Beautiful poem.

A spider and a flower, the spider weaving its web, the poet too his poem's theme, and with economy of words... and rhymes too, only two rhymes all thru, and the result is beautiful, and what else when the poet in question is Robert Frost.
