A Frosted Fork

Sincere apologies to the spirit of Robert Frost, 1875-1963

Some say the Earth will end in word,

Some say in number.

From what I’ve tasted of absurd

I hold with those who favor word.

But if we have to unencumber

To say that for ascension number

Is also great

To wake our slumber.

  1. Well, now. How interesting it was to find this at the top of my “To Read” list. As I interpret this, the end of the world is equated with waking us from our slumber. How fascinating I find that idea to be on multiple levels!

    Great photograph of him, is it not?
