Happy Monday friends! I hope you packed light and got some party clothes, cause this Monday we are one more embarking on a journey!

So today we are in America and we will explore:


Let's get to know Robert Frost:
Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) - was an American poet. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech. He is one of the most honored and critically acclaimed poets and even won a Pulitzer Prize for poetry. In his poems Frost explores the themes of existence and general emotions of human beings such as: love or loneliness. The surroundings of his poems is usually the rural life of New England. The Road Not Taken is a narrative poem consisting of four stanzas of 5 lines each in iambic tetrameter and is one of Frost's most popular works. Besides being among the best known poems, some claim that it is one of the most misunderstood.


When I go up through the mowing field,
The headless aftermath,
Smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew,
Half closes the garden path.

And when I come to the garden ground,
The whir of sober birds
Up from the tangle of withered weeds
Is sadder than any words

A tree beside the wall stands bare,
But a leaf that lingered brown,
Disturbed, I doubt not, by my thought,
Comes softly rattling down.

I end not far from my going forth
By picking the faded blue
Of the last remaining aster flower
To carry again to you.


Robert Frost, is a silent poet. You live your life to the fullest, as you think, and then one day you discover his poems and then life has no meaning without them!

This poem is so beautiful, so full of depth, that I just want to take that late walk with him!

See you next Monday!
