Nature's first green is gold, A
Her hardest hue to hold.A
Her early leaf's a flower;B
But only so an hour.B
Then leaf subsides to leaf.C
So Eden sank to grief,C
So dawn goes down to day.D
Nothing gold can stay. D

 

This poem shows how that nothing good can stay and that everything good must go back the way it was.
this poem has assonance and alliteration Frost compares good things to nature and how everything doesn't
last forever.

Robert Frost Poem link: Wind and Window Flower
external image rainy-day.jpg

Lovers, forget your love,
And listen to the love of these,
She a window flower,
And he a winter breeze.
When the frosty window veil
Was melted down at noon,
And the caged yellow bird
Hung over her in tune,
He marked her through the pane,
He could not help but mark,
And only passed her by
To come again at dark.
He was a winter wind,
Concerned with ice and snow,
Dead weeds and unmated birds,
And little of love could know.
But he sighed upon the sill,
He gave the sash a shake,
As witness all within
Who lay that night awake.
Per chance he half prevailed
To win her for the flight
From the firelit looking-glass
And warm stove-window light.
But the flower leaned aside
And thought of naught to say,
And morning found the breeze
A hundred miles away.

Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) as a young man who developed into not only and old man, but a well-known poet.


(The poem was too long to fit)

After searching through websites looking for poems by Robert Frost, I found one called Wind and Window Flower. When I first started reading the poem, the third and fourth lines grasped my attention. After reading those line, the words "different" and"love" came to mind. Then i went back and read the first two lines again and they read "Lovers, forget your love, and listen to the love of these."This made me want to keep reading about the two lovers who he compares to the wind and a window flower. The next stanza gives readers a better look on how different the wind and the window flower are, and hints that there is some seperation between the two when the sun's out. It reminds me of Romeo and Juliet, and how they were different, but loved each other enough to cherish any moment when they could meet. In this case, the wind and window flower meet at night. The window flower on the inside and the wind on the outside, the image that appeared in my head included a glass window being the only thing that seperated them. Unfortunatley for those who love a happ ending, when morning approaches "morning found the breeze a hundred miles away." This quote shows that once morning came the wind picked up and was blown miles away from the window flower like heat is blown away from hot soup before consumption. Similar to how I did in my last sentence, Robert Frost used literary devices throughout the poem. For example "she a window flower,and he a winter breeze" is a metaphor that Frost used to show how opposite the two lovers are. "But the flower leaned aside" can be found near the end of the poem and is an example of personification. Robert Frost attended Dartmouth College for two months and Harvard University for two years. Not graduating from college could not stop Frost from becoming a great writer.
