A Winter’s Poet

Robert FrostRobert Frost’s poems are better known than the life he lived.  Read the biography Papa Is a Poet: a Story About Robert Frost by Natalie S. Bober to hear about the life of one of America’s greatest poets as witnessed by his daughter Lesley Frost.  Robert Frost was a farmer, a poet and a deep thinker.  The book describes him perfectly:

Papa did things his way.  He decided to milk his cow at midnight so he could stay awake and read Shakespeare and write poems in the hush of a sleeping household.  I remember hearing the neighbors talk about the warm glow of the kerosene lamp in the kitchen window.
