The many poetic devices (imagery, metaphor, end rhyme, etc) used have made
this a great poem to use for teaching high school students. Short, compact
poetry has always appealed to me. I've never viewed Mr. Wilbur as a
"light-weight" as the biography suggests, but rather a concentrate! Besides
living in the deep south does not allow for a slow "exeunt" of autumn.
Leaves change from green to dead overnight.

Thanks to Mr. Wilbur for continuing the vision of nature that Frost and his
contemporaries established.
