Robert Frost again ... I can't resist

I found this today ... I want you to read and enjoy...

The truth has been Frost's central passion. He has never been fooled by easy solutions or tricked by slogans; he has never given in to the fashion of the moment in poetry or politics. Again and again he has reaffirmed his belief; he states part of it in " The Black Cottage": 

                                             ... why abandon a belief
Merely because it ceases to be true.
Cling to it long enough and not a doubt
It will turn true again, for so it goes. 
Most of the change we think we see in life
Is due to truths being in and out of favor. 
As I sit here, and oftentimes, I wish
I could be monarch of a desert land
I could devote and dedicate forever
To the truths we keep coming back and back to. 

... Preferring reality of experience to a retreat to a fantastic dream-world,
he insists: 

     " The fact is the sweetest dream that labor knows. " 

I'm sitting here now, thinking about it ... he's a wonderful poet.
Those lines touch my heart...

Have a wonderful day, evening, night, f-list
