WOW this poem touched me the second i read it. i was sitting in my 8th
grade english class readying the outsiders which im sure alot of people
have said && i had red ahead && when i finished my hand shot up && i asked
who wrote this poem. my teacher told me robert frost && that minute i knew
that this poem would stick with me. a year later in my 9th grade english
class we had to pick a person in literature that was of some importance to
us. the first person that jumped into my mind was robert frost && this

im glad that so many people around the world are touched by it. its a great
poem && an amazing poet.

the poem was confusing at first but then i realized that the poem was
trying to tell us not to take life for granted.!

I first read this poem in my English class while we were reading The
Outsiders. It popped into my head again last night while reading the end of
a James Patterson book called 1st to die. In the end of this book the main
charactor, Lindsay loses someone she holds dear, but she only just met him
a few weeks earliar. It made me think of this poem because, to me, that
poem is a real good summation of life. You think things will never change,
you feel like a certain person you know will always be there for you, and
the moment you turn away for even a second, they're gone.

it is so true that once youve got something you have to cherish it while it
lasts because nothing beautiful can stay forever.

this one of my favorites, but I never understood the line: Her early leaf's
a flower... Then a friend told me that the yellow (gold) flower might be
forsythia, which has yellow blooms before it has any green leaves. just

I've been reading Robert Frost for hours tonight, and this is the first
poem I've left a comment about- it's so all-encompassing, it's amazing. I
love how he uses nature because we are a part of the nature God's given us
and adhere to its rules with everything else in it.
