I love this poem! For me, it resonates with the wisdom of lived experience
and the joy of living from one's centre. It clearly expresses the
difference between regarding work as a means to an end and the vibrancy of
seeing it as "play for mortal stakes". I love the way Frost moves from an
apparently trivial event to profounder insight. What a joy! :-)

im having to do this poem as part of english A level, i cant stand this
poem by robert frost, however i do believe that he is an amazing poet, only

This poem is good as well as bad because afterwards it starts boring.but
discription of weather of different seasons is amazing

The rhythym and the meter of this poem is exceptional. Robert Frost is a
poetic master and novice poem makers do well to study his work. I honored
his poem in one of my own "Mud Angels in Quick Time" at

Robert Frost has a wonderful way of acknowledging that nature is always in
the present and thats where we should be as well by exercising
self-control. Easier said than done because a few universal common pitfalls
are anger, fantasizing, forgetting and other mind games.

Using death as an advisor( the lurking frost in the earth beneath) is a
good way to stay on our own personal courses. The bluebird doesn't waste
it's time.

I love this poem, it touches my heart and soul. I have been a nurse and a
jewelry maker and this poem about splitting wood and who has rights to what
work gets to the heart of both of those and so much more...Thank you Robert
Frost and Thank you American Poems for putting this up on the web.

Pam :)

This poem was so boring. I didn't like it at all. We were required to read
it for English class and I personally hated it!
