ROBERT FROST'S POEM OF NOSTALGIC CELEBRATION OF YOUTHFUL JOY
ROBERT FROST (1874-1963) TYPED POEM, "BIRCHES", SIGNED, "Robert Frost, To Alfred Kaises", 6 x 4, the opening lines to his poem, "Birches", originally published in "The Atlantic Monthly's" August issue in 1915 and later included in Frost's third collection of poetry "Mountain Interval", published in 1916. It is one of Frost's most anthologized poems. In full: "BIRCHES - When I see birches bend to left and right/Across the line of straighter darker trees,/I like to think some boy's been swinging then./But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay./Ice-storms do that. Often you must have seen them/Loaded with ice a sunny winter morning/After a rain." In fine condition, with minor age toning.
