"The Poems of Robert Frost" Journal by Sheila Cruz

Robert Frost was a man who had "poetry where his heart was." This book is all about emotion, all his poems were written in a way to make you feel and explore all of that.
"Natures first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leafs a flower; But only so in hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, so dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay."-Robert Frost (Nothing gold can stay) This specific poem appeared in "The Outsiders"
During some of his poems there's time you can relate it to yourself. To me one of those poems was "Revelation", which goes like this, "We make ourselves a place apart, behind light words that tease and flout, but oh, the agitated heart, Till someone finds us really out.'Tis we pity if the case required, (Or so we say) that in the end, We speak the literal to inspire, The understanding of a friend. But so with all, from babes that play, At hide-and seek to God afar, So all who hide too well away, Must speak and tell us where they are."
A Lot of poems have figurative language, but he also relates to himself, such as his poem "Lodged". "The rain to the wind said 'You push and I'll pelt.' They smote the garden bed, That the flowers actually knelt, and lay lodged—though not dead. I know how the flowers felt."
The rating I would give this would be a 9.5/10, though I would highly recommend his book, especially to those who enjoy poems and a deeper feeling when reading, because Robert Frost does all that.
