The Rose Family

Poem by Robert Frost

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

    That this clown's work receives such popularity beggars belief, to have him near the top of a list ahead of Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, William Blake, the list of his betters goes on; his egotistical monologues with simple versification projecting his mundane personal experiences into monumental events are ludicrous(Report)Reply

    People often criticize what they do not understand.

    I would like to add this stanza

    Yes, she once was a rose,
    The rose which was very close,
    But I dared not propose,
    Because everything around her froze!(Report)Reply

    The Comment Family - Poem by Me
    The comments are comments,
    And was always a comment.
    But the theory now goes
    That spam's a comment,
    And the random inappropriate outbursts are, and so's
    The other, I suppose.
    The dear only knows
    What will next prove a comment.
    You, of course, are a stupid person who comments and reads all the comments -
    But were always stupid commentator.
