  • POEM: The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost (8/25/2014 6:06:00 PM)

    The Road is a metaphor for not being satisfied or necessarily accepting what life puts forward but making your own path. In this poem the Road was -

    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.

    and -

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    the one less traveled by is in the heart of the traveler. This is a clever, ironic and brilliant poem.

  • POEM: Joe Smokes a Fag On the Beach by the guy in charge (2/2/2014 3:32:00 PM)

    Joe is interesting, the narrator is even more interesting, and you're left wanting to know more, which is the most interesting. This is good.

    The 'joy in suffering' is an interesting line. You feel the writer means it. A poem is a device for freedom. You have an interesting style. Confusion made sense, or sense in confusion.

    Hi Dan, really like this poem. From my viewpoint it seems like a " Hymn for an Agnostic" . Anyway, enjoyed it very much, thanks. Peter.

    Jefferson, this poem can be interpreted as a cry for God by someone unwilling to believe without proof. Amazing! You're a complicated character, Jefferson, as we all are. One of your better poems. Peter.

    It's hard to go past what you're saying in the poem. The experience you had. I hope your life is much happier now. For me, my wife and daughters are my lifeline. I hope you have some good people in your life and that those dark days are behind you. Best wishes, Peter.
