Frost that Warms the Heart

Robert Frost won not one but four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry. He said some things about poetry that speak to me.

“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”

“Every poem is a momentary stay against the confusion of the world.”

His, like all the best poetry, completely engages me. It is brief in its message, but, speaks directly to my heart. No detours. No dodges. No meandering. Just a jewel of language.

We lost you in the 60s. You still speak to us and it never grows old.
