I've been familiar with Frost's poetry--I've read or sung a good bit of it from High School to Randall Thompson's setting of Frost's poetry to music, Frostiana.

In a seminar class we read "Home Burial". The professor shared that of all the poetry Frost wrote and read aloud to audiences, "Home Burial" was one that was too personal to share publicly. Having looked more in depth at the poem, I too was struck by the insight and economy. As a pastor, this poem captures the struggle every married couple I've ever counseled. By that I do not mean in the specific circumstances and pain that are depicted in this poem, but in the general and tragic way in which couples miss one another.

Find it, and read it.

T I'd love to read this book too, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
