A Boy's Will
A BOY'S WILL By Robert Frost
Into My Own
The youth is persuaded that he will be rather more than less himself
for having forsworn the world.
He is happy in society of his choosing.
My November Guest
He is in love with being misunderstood.
Love and a Question
He is in doubt whether to admit real trouble to a place beside the
hearth with love.
A Late Walk
He courts the autumnal mood.
There is no oversight of human affairs.
He is afraid of his own isolation.
Wind and Window Flower
Out of the winter things he fashions a story of modern love.
To the Thawing Wind (audio)
He calls on change through the violence of the elements.
A Prayer in Spring
He discovers that the greatness of love lies not in forward-looking
nor yet in any spur it may be to ambition.
He is no dissenter from the ritualism of nature;
Asking for Roses
nor from the ritualism of youth which is make-believe.
Waiting--Afield at Dusk
He arrives at the turn of the year.
In a Vale
Out of old longings he fashions a story.
A Dream Pang
He is shown by a dream how really well it is with him.
He is scornful of folk his scorn cannot reach.
The Vantage Point
And again scornful, but there is no one hurt.
He takes up life simply with the small tasks.
Going for Water

Robert Frost was beyond doubt the only American poet to play a touching personal role at a Presidential inauguration; to report a casual remark of a Soviet dictator that stung officials in Washington, and to twit the Russians about the barrier to Berlin by reading to them, on their own ground, his celebrated poem about another kind of wall.
