Robert Frost Short Poems

Robert Frost Short Poems,

  • IN A POE~1
    The sentencIng goes bhthely on Its way,
    And takes the playfully objected rhYIne.
    As surely as it keeps the stroke and tune
    In having its undeviable say.
  • ON OUR SYMPATHY WITH
    THE UNDER DOG
    First under up and then again down under,
    We watch a circus of revolving dogs
    No senator dares in to lack asunder
    Lest both should bIte hun in the toga-togs.
  • A QUESTION
    A VOIce said, Look me ill the stars
    And tell me truly, men of earth,
    If all the soul-and-body scars
    Were not too much to pay for bIrth.
  • BOEOTIAN
    I love to toy wIth the Platonic notIOn
    That wisdom need not be of Athens AttIc,
    But well rna y be LaconIc, even BoeotIan.
    At least I wIll not have it systematic.
  • THE SECRET SITS
    We dance round in a rmg and suppose,
    But the Secret sits In the mIddle and knows.
  • AN EQUALIZER
    It is as true as Caesar’s name was KaIser
    That no economIst was ever WIser
    (Though prodigal himself and a despIser
    Of capital and calling thrift a mIser).
    And when we get too far apart in wealth,
    ‘Twas his idea that for the publIc health,
    So that the poor won’t have to steal by stealth,
    We now and then should take an equalizer.
  • A SEMI-REVOLUTION
    I advocate a semI-revolution.
    The trouble wIth a total revolution
    (Ask any leputable RosIcrucian)
    Is that it bnngs the same class up on top.
    Executives of skillful execution
    Will therefore plan to go halfway and stop.
    Yes, revolutions are the only salves,
    But they’re one thlng that should be done by halves.
  • ASSURANCE
    The danger not an inch outside
    Behind the porthole’s slab of glass
    And double ring of fitted brass
    I trust feels properly defied.
  • AN ANS\YER
    But Islands of the Blessed, ble~s you, son,
    I never came upon a blessed one.
