by Frost, Robert
As of no worth.
One can see what will trouble
This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.
Were he not gone,
The woodchuck could say whether it's like his
Long sleep, as I describe its coming on,
Or just some human sleep....Read More

And forbidding further passage.
"We must go back," said the old man, 
"O'er these logs we cannot clamber; 
Not a woodchuck could get through them, 
Not a squirrel clamber o'er them!" 
And straightway his pipe he lighted, 
And sat down to smoke and ponder. 
But before his pipe was finished, 
Lo! the path was cleared before him; 
All the trunks had Kwasind lifted, 
To the right hand, to the left hand, 
Shot the pine-trees swift as arrows, 
Hurled the cedars light as ...Read More

...pening corn the pigeons flew, 
The partridge drummed i' the wood, the mink 
Went fishing down the river-brink. 
The woodchuck, like a hermit gray, 
Peered from the doorway of his cell; 
The muskrat plied the mason's trade, 
And tier by tier his mud-walls laid; 
And from the shagbark overhead 
The grizzled squirrel dropped his shell. 

Next, the dear aunt, whose smile of cheer 
And voice in dreams I see and hear, -- 
The sweetest woman ever Fate

...wer's time and place,
Flight of fowl and habitude
Of the tenants of the wood;
How the tortoise bears his shell,
How the woodchuck digs his cell,
And the ground-mole sinks his well;
How the robin feeds her young,
How the oriole's nest is hung;
Where the whitest lilies blow,
Where the freshest berries grow,
Where the ground-nut trails its vine,
Where the wood-grape's clusters shine;
Of the black wasp's cunning way,
Mason of his walls of clay,
And the architectural plans
Of gray...Read More

...chosen left. Hold out the left. 
Another Ram's Horn! Where did you find those, 
Under what beech tree, on what woodchuck's knoll?" 
Anne looked at the large lawyer at her side, 
And thought she wouldn't venture on so much. 
"Were there no others?" 
"There were four or five. 
I knew you wouldn't let me pick them all." 
"I wouldn't--so I wouldn't. You're the girl! 
You see Anne has her lesson learned by heart." 
"I wanted there should be some there ...Read More
