Glad you have the title correct in this comment section; it's wrong on the
poem page, and there's an irritating typo as well.--

That said, nice early Frost: he hasn't quite subdued 19th c. sentimentality
in both subject (an unavailable "one") and in syntax--the last line is a
killer, requiring a reread where, in later Frost, one would be left with a
reverberation ("Or just some human sleep").
