Book Summary

He moves in darkness as it seems to me, Not of woods only and the shade of trees. He will not go behind his fathers saying, And he likes having thought of it so well He says again, Good fences make good neighbours.

    This collection of Frost poems was hard for me to follow. I felt like the genius of these got past me. I don't want to write them off completely. Next time I would like to read these with a commentary to get a fuller understanding of what he was doing in the format. I did enjoy that he did mostly free verse, I just wish I understood his use of it better.

    "Truths In and Out of Favor"

    "For, dear me, why abandon a belief Merely because it ceases to be true. Cling to it long enough, and not a doubt It will turn true again, for so it goes. Most of the change we think we see in life Is due to truths being in and out of favor."

    These lines sum up Robert Frost's ideas and writing. His poetry is unlike poetry, but more like dialog. It is usually a conversation between rusticates... old country folk. And, though it is usually in a world that is unfamiliar to our everyday existence, we feel it in our collective bones, in our DNA, because it hearkens us back to 'rewild' in a word. In an age where even rural dwellers on dirt-roads (like myself) surf the internet on a satellite dish; his truths seem to have outlived the country lifestyle.

    "Something there is that doesn't love a wall, That wants it down."



    "But, bless you, I'm her mother— I can't talk to her, and, Lord, if I could!"



    This is a collection of about 17 of these conversational poems. Each one reflects real people; not perfect polished people, but people being human. Of course I love "Mending Wall" and "The Death of the Hired Man," which I'd read before. They both tell us truths about what being a neighbor is all about. But, I don't remember seeing "The Housekeeper" before. That was not only full of truth, but it was a hilarious caricature of real people in their own house. And, that is what it all boils down to, Robert Frost in the bottom of the kettle. He loves people. I mean, not the way everybody says, "I'm a people lover," while hating people. Yeah, we all have our moments of misanthropy. But, Frost honestly seems to like people.

    The book ends with a poem called "Good Hours." When are the good hours of a day for you? Well, think about that... then if you have Kindle, you can download this classic free, and see when the best hours of the day were in Frost's opinion. I'd imagine though that the good hours are still to be found; in moments like these.
