Poetry Friday: The Pasture by Robert Frost

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Better Off Dead from Whisper House by Duncan Sheik

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. -- You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. -- You come too.

- The Pasture by Robert Frost

Ooh! I love Robert Frost! Thanks for reminding me of my commitment to read a poem every Friday - and to helping me keep it! :)

You are welcome!

I discovered this through Thaw, one of the Cybils 2008 YA finalists.

This has always been one of my favorites by Frost. Thanks for bringing it back up to the front of my mind.

I really need to read more Frost poetry. I've never even *seen* that one before. Thanks for the idea.

Nor had I, until I read Thaw! (See above comment re: Cybils!)
