"Birches" - Not going to lie, this is one of my least favorite poems by Frost. Not that it's bad. It's just... I can't really connect with it. The footnote explains the deeper meaning of it but... meh. The artwork was nice, though!

And that's the end! God, I love this book! It felt so good to be reading Robert Frost's poems again. It's been so long! I loved them all! Even the ones I was not so found of were great. The footnotes were a big help to understand the more complicated ones and the artwork just makes it that much more enjoyable! Off to the review!

"Mending Wall" - I like this poem a lot, even though the "neighbor" in it was a complete douche. But that's people for you... you can't trust them. *Sighs* Footnote explains the background perfectly and the artwork is just stunning as usual.

"Pea Birch" - Another cute poem about Frost as a farmer. The footnote, I feel, didn't try to help the reader understand what the farmer was doing but if you read closely enough, it's easy to figure out. The artist went all out with this piece. ^_^

"To the Thawing Wind" - Ah! I remember reading this one in school! I didn't really understood it then but I do now. It's a poet in search for inspiration! XD Footnote is helpful. Artwork is gorgeous!

"A Time to Talk" - Tee-Hee-Hee! This is cute~ A farmer stopping his work to talk to a friend. I am grateful the footnote pointed out the last line. I didn't notice that at first but now I know what it is saying. ^_^ Cute artwork, of course~

"A Prayer in Spring" - Another poem I am greatly fond of. Wanting something to stay the same, so you pray for it.. but at the same time... knowing it can never stay the same... that time changes. I know this all too well. And in case you couldn't get that from the poem itself, the footnote explains it beautifully. Once again, the colors for this illustration! UGH! LOVE!

"The Wood-Pile" - This poem might seem somewhat dull but I get it. He saw rotting wood and created a story, or in this case poem, for it. I like how the footnote explained it best. Not much to say about the artwork for this one. It's just a wood-pile.

"Good Hours" - Another poem I can relate to. You might feel alone yet find comfort with those that surround you. Be it trees or birds or the thoughts that live inside your head, you have companionship. Footnote understands that and artwork is stunning.

"A Patch of Old Snow" - I love these kinds of poems. You're experiencing something in the here and now, but then, out of nowhere, you get a feeling of nostalgia. It's such a bizarre feeling... but it's there and you can't help but think of days of old. Footnote brings the reader's attention to what's really going on. And need I tell you how awesome Sorensen's artwork is?
