    Poem Commentary

    EVEN IF LIFE IS SHORT, IT IS OF NOTHING AS DEADLY AND DARK AS DEATH !!! AFTER ALL THERE IS SOME BRILLIANCE IN LIFE WHICH I AM PRETTY SURE DEATH LACKS !!!

    WHY ?

    why
        is   Life  a   bright-short      Day ?
    and
        Death a dreary-sure Night,
    that
        None can its vernom fight,
    and
        Nought alive has in its word a say ?

    I did not want this poem to end...I wanted more. You pose two poignant quetions. The answers to which will continue to elude humankind: Death is here to stay. Terse yet powerful. AF.

    THANKS FOR ENJOYING THIS SIMPLE WORK OF MINE. FORGIVE MY DELAY IN REPLYING YOUR COMMENT. A CRAZY 'SLIP-OF- ATTENTION' IT ALL WAS!!! I' LL BE MORE CAREFUL NEXT TIME!!!! THANKS!!! GUSTY.

    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.
