That is VERY very interesting, Sunil. I would like to find that out too. I
think it does though, or in any way that human expression would, like
music, art, individuality.That would be very interesting to find out.

Well, first I'd like to say that I'm from India, a poet by inclination and
a journalist by trade for the time being. I believe Robert Frost certainly
had a metaphysical edge to his poetry. I am unaware of the history of
Robert Frost but I have heard his recitation in JFK'S inaugural address.
What I'd like to say is that all poets senses are slightly skewed. This of
course is my personal perception. Why a poet creates is a question that we
should ask? What is it that makes a poet a poet? Well I don't know if
people in the United States identify with this, but what I believe is that
our great president, seer,visionary and poet is also a scientist? So, is
there a connection between poetry and science.? If so, we should also
identify the neural pathways which lead to this. I believe America is in
the forefront of this particular initiative. I would certainly want the
fountainhead of Western civilisation to actually research on why any poet
was creative and whether poetry actually has practical value.

I have two things to comment on. First of all, there are two mistakes.
First Stanza: "i was just as the light was beginning to fail" should be,
"It was just as the light was beginning to fail", and a mistake in Stanza
Three: "I was something among the leaves I sought" should be, "It was
something among the leaves I sought"
The second thing I would like to comment on is that i believe that this
poem has a deeper meaning, like with a number of other poems, that is
hidden between the lines. It is powerful in terms of language usage and the
feeling of how Robert Frost captured what he was thinking!
