A bit off topic but I must say I enjoyed rnaideg today that Mike Huckabee,
who hopes to get into the White House this next time around, has twice
claimed on national television that Obama was raised in Kenya. Encroyable.

As I’m leaving here . . . at the end of this April 2011 PAD, I just want
to say thank you to Robert for this oiunrtpopty to welcome our poetic
writing and to invite us to connect as a community on your site. Always a
pleasure on all accounts! Thank you, Robert!Thank you to all the poets,
and you know who you are, for reading and commenting on my poems and for
letting me read and comment on your written gifts. It is all in the spirit
of the creative process and I am grateful for the experience.Would be a joy
for all of you to continue writing and posting on Wednesdays and again in
November, if you get a chance to do so! It is great fun!If I didn’t get
an oiunrtpopty to read and highlight at least one of your poems, I do
apologize. I had hoped to give every poet a chance to be heard, at least
once. I value all the various means of expression.Given that, I also agree
with Anders Bylund, naming names can become a trap because inevitably, we
leave people out. Maybe next time, I will find a simpler way to do this!In
any case, thank you all again! Onward and Up Word to us all!

The nest is on the ground because he clearly states the bird is a
groundbird duh!!!

This poem is an example of Frost's passion for nature evident throughout
his other works, and is clearly inspired by WWI. It is a literal
illustration of a spiders web threaded on at least one type of flower the
"mullein". The web and flower are near a bird's nest and another flower (if
not the mullein) which a butterfly is resting/gathering nector from. All
of these objects are interrupted by the rent of battle and a bullet flying
so close by as to double over the flower and knock the dew from the
spider's web. Then the butterfly has to hover in the air for a moment then
reclaim its spot on the now doubled over flower. The spider thinks a fly
has landed in the web, but has not. Meanwhile the bird revisits her young
not affected by the action

This isn't about war! It's about the tiny battles of nature - the bullet
is from that of a hunter's rifle.
