To A Thinker Poem By Robert Frost,

The last step taken found your heft
Decidedly upon the left.
One more would throw you all the nght.
Another stIlI-you see your plIght
You call thIS trunkmg, but It’S wallong.
Not even that, It’s only rockIng,
Or weaving like a stabled horse’
From force to matter and back to force,
From form to content and back to form,
From norm to crazy and back to norm,
From bound to free and back to bound,
From sound to sense and back to sound
So back and forth. It almost scares
A man the way things come in pairs.
Just now you’re off democracy
(With a pohte regret to be),
And leaning on dictatorship;
But if you wIll accept the tip,
In less than no bme, tongue and pen,
You’ll be a democrat agam.
A reasoner and good as such,
Don’t let it bother you too much
If it makes you look helpless please
And a temptation to the tease.
Suppose you’ve no dIrectIon in you,
I don’t see but you must contInue
To use the gift you do possess,
And sway with reason more or less.
I own I never really warmed
To the reformer or reformed.
And yet converSIOn has its place
Not halfway down the scale of grace.
So if you :find you must repent,
From side to side in argument,
At least don’t use your mind too ha
