Poems force us to pause, to read, to think, and to reread, and then read more in order to find meaning. Frankly, we are lazy, myself included at times - we don't want to work for it. We rather watch a movie or read Sparknotes.
Yet once we start to make connections between poets over time like a family of tree, we enter the conversation. At first, we must listen. Then once we've read enough and heard enough, we share in the conversation.
So where do we begin? Well, what Frost poem interests you - what moves you? Select a poem and paste to this page as a published post. Introduce the poem with relevant information from Frost's life. Below the poem, write a paragraph as to why it spoke to you.
I will share an example later tonight.
