A challenge to the classic works of Robert Frost.

Robertís Wrongs
By Barbara Audet
© 2008

Frost, you have no idea
How stark the turn is
In my wood.

At my house, so tempered
By the pester call
Of snow and wind.

Like my vanity,
Showing signs of
Mortal foundation cracks.

Timbers eaten by
Generations of old and young
Who dangerously table
At my hearth.

No, when you faced
That wintry stoppage
Sane and unsane solutions
Bifolded open.

In the blankness of a poetís blur
Of dreamy justification.

The turn on my hill?
The wall lies stunned.

A once haughty barricade
Of well-mortared
Thoughts, just ballast.

While the cyclone of natureís voices
Breaking thoughts to dust
Is answerless.

Wow, this is extremely well-written. "Stopping by the Snowy Woods" and "Road less Travelled" are going through my brain while reading this, excellent.

Interesting observation and point of view....
