This poem was written about the Von Trapp family when they moved to Stowe VT. There were 10 children and Maria and Georg Von Trapp. They all loved the land and forest where they were living and it is a tribute to their life up on the mountain.

Frost was absolutely Christian. His wife was atheist, but he did not share her atheistic views. The trans substantiation informed his philosophy of natural dualism. Read Peter Stanlis for more.

There is no "Christian side." Frost was an atheist.
