When this was first published, what was the reaction of the public/readers?
Wouldn't that be interesting to know

great poem, but also consider.. his father died at age 11, this poem was
published at age 19. maybe the sadness of this poem is connected to the
death of his father?

This is an amazing poem about weather, nature, and Christ. I wonder what
Mr. Robert Frost was thinking when he wrote this electrifying poem.

I loved this poem, I never knew Robert Frost 1st poem before. But, do go
in and correct the missed spelled words and such.

This is quite a beautiful elegy. The description of winter seems to lay,
not only in the surroundings about him, but within his heart as well. How
elegant to describe his love as a butterfly that flew away from God's
grasp, just wondering where she flew off to. Though this poem is quite cold
and saddening, it is strangely heart warming as well.
