If heaven were to do again,
And on the pasture bars,
I leaned to line the figures in
Between the dotted starts,
I should be tempted to forget,
I fear, the Crown of Rule,
The Scales of Trade, the Cross of Faith,
As hardly worth renewal.
For these have governed in our lives,
And see how men have warred.
The Cross, the Crown, the Scales may all
As well have been the Sword.
I like how he put all the subjects of Christ in perspective. He makes you think about the poem and he also teaches you more different things about the three things of Christ
This poem sounds like a shepherd’s reckless yet profound thoughts while star gazing.
This poem from Robert Frost may not be the most popular one but it definitely has a good meaning to it. I enjoyed it a lot.
