My New Fascination....>

Robert Frost was one amazing guy. The first poem i read of him was A Road Not Taken and I absulutely LOVED it. This is another poem by him that i liked.

Asking for Roses
A house that lacks, seemingly, mistress and master,
With doors that none but the wind ever closes,
Its floor all littered with glass and with plaster;
It stands in a garden of old-fashioned roses.
I pass by that way in the gloaming with Mary; '
I wonder,' I say, 'who the owner of those is.'
'Oh, no one you know,' she answers me airy,
'But one we must ask if we want any roses.'
So we must join hands in the dew coming coldly
There in the hush of the wood that reposes,
And turn and go up to the open door boldly,
And knock to the echoes as beggars for roses.
'Pray, are you within there, Mistress Who-were-you?'
'Tis Mary that speaks and our errand discloses.
'Pray, are you within there? Bestir you, bestir you!
'Tis summer again; there's two come for roses.
'A word with you, that of the singer recalling--
Old Herrick: a saying that every maid knows is
A flower unplucked is but left to the falling,
And nothing is gained by not gathering roses.'
We do not loosen our hands' intertwining
(Not caring so very much what she supposes),
There when she comes on us mistily shining
And grants us by silence the boon of her roses.

  4. aaaalrighty then!!

    Have NO idea about this Hamsta character, but I LOVE the Frost caracter... well- not the character, but his poems.
    We had to analyse Road Not Taken for HSC English... I loved it. I love the fact that he can use nature in his poems so effectively!

    Anyway, shant ramble on about him for any longer...
    Hope life at school isn't too much of a bummer
