The color gives it a one of a kind look. I once had to call cmeotusr
service to place an order and they were easy to deal with.

i think this poem is saying that it might be hard to decipher what is gold
in all this dust,(like finding a needle in a hay stack) but when we do find
it we need to take advantage of it.

Have you ever heard someone say that we all eat about eight spiders before
we die? The same thing applies here: not as common, but some say that we
all eat a peck of dust in our lifetime. A peck, by the way is the dry
equivalent of two gallons. Frost said that we all must eat our peck of
gold. He is saying that life is sugar-coated and is really nothing special
like everyone says. But this would somewhat contradict the conclusion of
"Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." I'm not really sure. Comment back.

I believe this is an excellent poem by Robert Frost. This poem shows
meaning about the Gold Rush in the 1800's and how dust would pick up their
because of the mining and digging. Great Poem! Adios!

I'm studying robert frost in for my final yr 12 piece of assessment. we
have to pick a poem that relates to us somehow, or to a theme we want to
use in our spoken task. It was this poem that i chose to relate to myself
because i interpreted it as meaning: that in life we learn the most/
discover the most precious things in the most insignificant. i thought that
dust represented the insignificant happenings or people in our lives but
that if we listen to the wise people who told us 'some of the dust was
really gold' we would be able to appreciate that it is those happenings or
those people who really make our life rich.

but that's just my interpretation and we all know robert frost's poems are
written in such a way that they are able to have a million different

luv nat
