Poem Commentary

The symphony of beauty that exist , full of notes , tunes , and keys .

My heart's dance

See you look apon my beauty from the front porch
I look at my beauty from the window out.
If beauty is the first thing to attract you
What makes you stay?

In my own way I put just a little of myself on display
You once looked at me in amazement, when
you caught my talent at play.

At first glance , It seems shallow , my heart
once you've peered again , it's a deep as any sea
I'd invite in , Yet my other half should have the key.

My yard is a bit tattered , covered with some debry
the outside of my home could use some repairing indeed
Inside , it's warm , cozy , inviting ,yearning for your company.

The wind blows , whispers of I-know-you-stories
I've closed my windows to them , they bore me.
In hopes that one day, you'll appear knowing what to say.

The seasons bring cheer, gloom, curiousity begans to bloom
I prod with questions , i'm too experienced to assume
still each time , he's not quite right.

Then a sudden thunder , crackles, pops through the sky
I ajar my door , the winds are thrashing hard.
At first our eyes met, I felt that in your chest
lived my heart . startled , a lost for words 
yet your face grew more handsome with
every sparkle of lightening . So lost in the moment
I neglected to invite you in.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
