The Last Mowing Poem

The Last Mowing Poem By Robert Frost

There’s a place called Far-away Meadow,
We never shall mow in agaIn,
Or such is the talk at the farmhouse:
The meadow is finIshed WIth men.
Then now is the chance for the flowers
That can’t stand mowers and plowers.
It must be now, though, in season
Before the not mowing brings trees on,
Before trees, seeing the openmg,
March mto a shadowy claim.
The trees are all I’m afraid of,
That flowers can’t bloom in the shade of;
It’s no more men I’m afraid of;
The meadow is done WIth the tame.
The place for the moment is ours
For you, oh tumultuous flowers,
To go to waste and go wild ill,
All shapes and colors of flowers,
I needn’t call you by name.
