I thought that this poem was a good illistration of even the strongest things can be broken down and nothing lasts forever. The poem talks about nature and how fragile it actually is. Plus it was very short and I needed a book/poem to read real quick.

In 1923 Robert Frost published his Selected Poems in the spring followed by this collection in November. The following year he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for it. In addition to the titular poem this collection includes the famous "Fire and Ice", a short poem with resonance from Dante and others.
One of my favorites is "The Onset" that seems an appropriate poem to meditate upon as spring approaches. I think we can see a hint of Dante again in this poem with "the dark woods", and there is als

Frost's fourth book of poetry maintains the consistency established by its immediate predecessor Mountain Interval. It's probably the high water mark for high-school English standards: "Fire and Ice," "Nothing Gold Can Stay," "The Need of Being Versed in Country Things" and the golden oldie "Stopping By Woods" which despite being traduced and trivialized in every imaginable way really is a classic. New Hampshire confirms my sense of Frost as a kind of short story writer in verse; see the title p ...more

This collection is where Frost starts to write in a very tight fashion. He used large conversation poems almost exclusively before this point and the difference in conveying meaning and feeling in this collection is immense.

Frost's ability to grow and an author shows why he is one of the greatest poets the US has ever produced.

I had to find this book this spring after looking up one of my favorite Frost poems, "Nothing Gold Can Stay." New Hampshire has several of his well known poems, but is incredibly difficult to find. As far as I can tell it may have been reissued once, but no one has that in stock.

This edition is from the first set of printings. Mine is the sixth printing, done in 1928. Most copies I have found are for sale for hundreds of dollars. Fortunately I located one copy on biblio.com for the incredibly r

This 1923 Robert Frost book contains some five star poems such as Fire and Ice, Nothing Gold Can Stay, Dust of Snow, and, one of his most popular poems, Stopping by Woods on A Snowy Evening. Also in this collection is A Star in a Stone-Boat, a poem that stone wall lovers may wish to bookmark. The remaining works may alternately mystify, disappoint, or please, depending upon individual characteristics of each reader. In sum, it seems quite safe to say that this volume was significant in enrichin ...more

Personally, I HATE POETRY! In this poem, I felt that Robert Frost was speaking of innocence when addressing the highly coveted and fleeting state of "gold". Nothing new stays new, over time and through experience they lose value. In today's society it is extremely hard to retain innocence. Robert Frost through effective use of metaphors describes the loss of innocence in a very unique and captivating way.
Michael Arnold
Good old Frost. :3

Good gracious, this collection is such a slog to get through, but it also has the highest concentration of the best Frost poems, so it's in the really boring tug of war with itself over how terrible it wants to be. There's nothing to be found here that isn't anthologized endlessly.

Dust of Snow
by: Robert Frost

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
Katy
Maple was by far my favorite poem in this collection. I loved the search for identity. I love Frost and his use of place in his poetry.
TJ
This collection contains one of my favorite frost poems, "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening."

Flinty, moody, plainspoken and deep, Robert Frost was one of America's most popular 20th-century poets. Frost was farming in Derry, New Hampshire when, at the age of 38, he sold the farm, uprooted his family and moved to England, where he devoted himself to his poetry. His first two books of verse, A Boy's Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were immediate successes. In 1915 he returned to the ...more

“The tree the tempest with a crash of wood
Throws down in front of us is not to bar
Our passage to our journey's end for good,
But just to ask us who we think we are”
