A Tribute to Robert Frost!

A TRIBUTE
By Bobby Brown

He wrote of BLUEBERRIES and SPRINGPOOLS
FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN that dazzle with their light
He wrote of GOOD HOURS when he walked
He was ONE ACQAUINTED WITH THE NIGHT

He wrote of BIRCHES and A CONSIDERABLE SPECK
Like all poets, he had a deeper style
ONCE BY THE PACIFIC he was inspired
He even wrote about A WOODPILE

He wrote about THE ROAD NOT TAKEN
PASTURES, SAND DUNES, and MENDING A WALL
He wrote of THE TUFT OF FLOWERS and THE THAWING WIND
And that seemed to be his call

He wrote about OCTOBER and GATHERING LEAVES
He showed us the beauty of A DUST OF SNOW
And STOPPING BY WOODS ON A SNOWY EVENING
Is a poem that we all cherish and know…
