Read this poem, and the last stanza, when you're feeling desperate and
drawn to give away your ideals or when you feel like you're losing your
love - it doesn't make things better, but it makes you feel proud of at
least not "going with the drift of things".

Im still amazed at how effectively Robert Frost is able to use
environmental metaphors. This poem is very good.

My father used the last stanza of this poem on a notice he sent out when
our Golden Retriever, Mick, died of cancer. When I read this I can't help
but think of man's reluctance to give up a moment in nature.
Maybe the same is true for dogs.
