I do not understand how anyone can think that this poem is boring. I had to
do a project on it for school. I think this poem is wonderful!!

this poem is quite boring. i can't imagine what it took to write a poem
about gathering leaves after they fell from a tree. there is nothing poetic
about it. they're just leaves. Robert Frost must have had too much time on
his hands if he actually thought it was good.

I too heard this poem on the public radio station yesterday. It was lost
and now found again since I recited it more than 30 years ago in Mr.
Haussen's Modern Poetry High School Class at Amity. What a delight is is
to share it tonight with my 9 year-old son.

Just heard this poem read on the Radio. What a delight! I was on the way
home after a rough day at the office, and this is just what I needed to
cleanse myself of all the rigours of my job. My bride will be home later
this evening, as she has a meeting with her womens Art group. I'll be all
alone, and drinking a beer, thinking about this refreshing little Autumn

Allen James from United States
