    • POEM: The Pasture by Robert Frost (1/15/2014 12:02:00 AM)

      This was my first favourite Frost poem fifty years ago. The relaxed rhyme and metrics are unusual for a poet who is generally uptight about these things- and lets you know it. Here the impression is modernist, even imagist- less ponderous. Although I've since read a biographer who suggests the poem was for Frost's wife, I've always imagined a friendly farm lad inviting a much younger brother or sister to accompany him on his chores, a Saturday afternoon treat.

    • POEM: Pan With Us by Robert Frost (1/2/2014 2:47:00 PM)

      The little kids don't see Pan because they aren't looking for him. Pagan fun and games were supposed to have been left behind in bad old Europe. I wonder what Frost would say about the current situation in his country, almost a hundred years later.
