What is your all-time favorite Frost poem?

I'm torn between "The Rabbit Hunter" and "Brown's Descent", although I haven't made my way through the anthology yet.

I personally like "nothing gold can stay" by frost

What Say You

What say you?
Yes you,
who won't tell.
To you,
I am nothing.
But I am something to me.
I, who wants to know,
what you won't tell
I'm asking you.
Yes you.
So...
What say you?

Appreciating the Frost poems. Did anyone notice my previous post regarding The Dymock Poets? It was addressed to Bulldog at the time, but it refers , among others, to what appears to be an important time in Frost's life.

Are you ready? Ready for what ready for this just another Donkey original true and steady....

A reflection appears but why, who
It sparkles and you wonder for who

Who is this and what now, has time really gone this fast
Deep down you peer, it sort of resembles something of a past

Is it really, has it gone this fast, but what lies ahead you ask
You leave the past knowing it brought you here and now you must finish
this task

Gather this past and carry it with you on this path that lies ahead
Never dwelling on what cant be changed, it's already in your head

You gather yourself stand back from this lake, breath deep
Forward we go, through it all together even as we lay deep in sleep

Brother and sister we all are; forever as we take this fearful leap
In we jump feet first tall and proud no matter how far, together we
will conquer this mighty feat

For future, past, and present as you walk through this valley of the
shadow of death fear no evil for I am with you and again we shall meet

Please kindly note this is a rough and a work in progress it is not done yet or perhaps it is who knows only the present and the past....

Here is a short one I wrote not to long ago...

Sometimes in life you wonder why

Why has time passed me by

Why did things happen that way

Why did I not just speak up and say

Why now has the time gone by

Why do I wonder why

Sometimes in life you wonder why

Ok now for something from the sensitive side...hahahaha

Her - Is it you maybe so you never know


The simple existence of this worldly wonder is a marvel to behold

Her mere presence makes the world slow makes everything seem to unfold

Just knowing her existence gives you the persistence to define your existence

Even the few moments you've spent are your most cherished, for instance

You wish to see her sparkle, every day you wonder when again you will get to hold

This worldly wonder this sparkle this princess this goddess maybe never, maybe that's life but all you needed was that one moment to behold

To her by me
