A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on deed, future, heaven, life, love, mortality, needs, play, separation, work, and yielding

But yield who will to their separation, My object in living is to unite My avocation and my vocation As my two eyes make one in sight. Only where love and need are one, And the work is play for mortal stakes, Is the deed ever really done For Heaven and the future's sakes.

Talking is a hydrant in the yard and writing is a faucet upstairs in the house. Opening the first takes all the pressure off the second.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on beginning, love, pleasure, poetry, and wisdom

It should be of the pleasure of a poem itself to tell how it can. The figure a poem makes. It begins in delight and ends in wisdom. The figure is the same for love.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on clarity and water

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring; I'll only stop to rake the leaves away (And wait to watch the water clear, I may): I shan't be gone long. - You come too.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on awareness, earth, love, and thought

But strictly held by none, is loosely bound By countless silken ties of love and thought To everything on earth the compass round, And only by one's going slightly taut In the capriciousness of summer air Is of the slightest bondage made aware.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost

She is as in a field a silken tent At midday when a sunny summer breeze Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent, So that in guys it gently sways at ease.

All those who try to go it sole alone Too proud to be beholden for relief, Are absolutely sure to come to grief.
