The Frost Place

Daughter Rebecca teaches Frost in her poetry class, Vicki used to teach his work way back when, and, on a good day, I can paraphrase the first line from one of his poems. So we had to visit "The Frost Place" near Franconia, NH.

Perhaps not authentic

The Frost Place...he bought it and lived in it for 5
years, then sold it back but rented it for summers
in many succeeding years

The Poetry Barn is a sort of combined museum/gift
shoppe, theater (excellent film on Frost)

Nice front porch view of Mt. Washington


A Morris chair and writing desk he actually used

A typical issue of Life...Frost, including
several new poems, Jackie, Nixon...sigh

Some of his regular venues

A quarter mile walk in the woods featuring Frost

"...in a yellow wood..."

A special place, the last day it was open for the
season...but we had to get back on the road and
to the leaves
