    It's actually quite astounding how prolific of a writer this man was. I realize now that regardless of any rhyme scheme, any diction, any scene that I wish to incorporate: there's a good chance Frost has already used it.

    I think that this poem means that the world could end in hate or it could just end on its own when the sun burns out like the hate some people have can be really bad and it could force them to blow up on the person that they hate that much or the ice means that they could just keep their cool and ignore the person that they have hate for but if the fire happens it could be really bad.

    I just re-discovered 'Revelation' by Robert Frost thru this website. Someone posted (in 2003) what they thought it meant. To me, it has a very personal meaning - how people put up a 'front' and pretend that everything is okay, and don't let people really get to know them until they are hurting so bad that they have to turn to someone.

    I would urge everyone to write comments about specific Frost poems they like, avoiding generalisations whenever possible.

    The first line of 'For Once, Then, Something' should be:
    'Others taunt me for having knelt at well-curbs' and not 'taught' me as is printed here.

    Robert Frost's poetry deals with New England life and character.You deal with homely situations and your style is simple.The poems often show the poet's unusual power of observing little noticed details of natural objects and rural characters.

Revelation

We make ourselves a place apart
Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
Till someone find us really out.

'Tis pity if the case require
(Or so we say) that in the end
We speak the literal to inspire
The understanding of a friend.
