This poem shows that Frost has scientific and poetic knowledge. That makes
this poem really great.

I think that this is one of Frost's most haunting and magical poems, and it
has stuck in my memory ever since I first read it more than a decade ago.
Inevitable advances in astronomical knowledge and scientific precision have
made part of it a little dated (e.g. the equation of 'star', 'meteor', and
asteroid), but the basic idea remains captivating. This is not a
naturalistic poem, and certain passages are worthy of the Magical Realists,
but one is left wishing that it might all be true. Frost was obviously
fascinated by the night sky (c.f. 'The Star-Splitter'), and he was familiar
with it, and with meteors, in a way that we cannot be in the days of light
pollution ...

this poem was written with the wrong words in mind. He wrote this poem
just to make up ryming words. What a disgrace!!!
