Frost is at the DINNER table for his final meal of the day. His personal
season of fertility is over. He observes. He is aware of the trials for
the seed. But the seed is already planted and he cannot control it with
his own will. It will grow without Frost's control. The trick is to watch
and allow life to be.

well, in my opinon Frost has written some good poems, however do you really
think he spent all his time thinking over every word so it meant something
- because i certainly don't, i think people add symbolism to make
themselves sound intelligent!

poems Mr.mahmoud ghoochani for


Nobody aware of his future

I want to go .
May be I don’t come back again . and maybe come back .
Nobody aware of his future .
I want to write again .
Even my pen is broken and my heart be annihilated…
But I am in a mood to do this … .
I want to look at the reality rightly and tell them to other .
I want to be with you again …
Nobody aware of his future …
Maybe I come back soon …
Nobody aware of his future , but I will come and speak to you about the
fate of the storms .
I don’t want flower but I like the love very much .

The simple words of the moments

The last passenger who takes the loneliness road , sees the night in which
the tree of love left him a simple word . a shelterless stillness , a
lonely evening , the mirage of horizon , scarcity of lyrics , to stay and
leave , coming and going .
Are the black clouds upon the simple word of the moments .

First off, who cares if Mr. Frost was gay?

That out of the way, the poem seems to me a tangle of metaphor and literal
translation. For example, "burying the white" can be read as filling the
page as well as read with the following line (i.e. showing the tending of
one's property). Of course, the obvious sexual references can still be bled
from these same lines when introducing "barren", "smooth bean" and
"wrinkled pea" in the subsequent lines.

It seems Frost challenges us next when he claims that his mate might
"become like" him, "Slave to a Springtime passion...". This might appear to
contradict the idea that he is being called from the field to tend to his
mate's needs (since he here claims to have the passion himself). Of course,
the tending of these fields requires both the passion and the literal act.

On balance, a beautiful piece that mixes sexuality with natural metaphors
of nature both rich and complex.

Yes, this is very sexy, but I feel more of the practical poet here; for
me, he seems to be talking about the poet's need for someone down to earth
to come and rouse him from his muse, as he writes and he appreciates his
wife for keeping the house together and giving his life some schedule
because otherwise he would be too absorbed in his work to notice, just as
he may very well be when gardening, too. There's not much difference in
the professions.
