Bereft

Robert Frost was born on March 26, 1874 in San Francisco, California. He spent the first 11 years of his life there, until his father, William Prescott Frost Jr., died of tuberculosis. After his high school graduation in 1892, Frost attended Dartmouth University for several months, returning home to work a slew of unfulfilling jobs. In 1894, he had his first poem, "My Butterfly: an Elegy," published in The Independent, a weekly literary journal. This poem was a success, and from there on Robert Frost published 2 poetry books in 1912. From there on, Robert Frost had a good reputation and became a famous writer.

"Bereft" By Robert Frost. Glog By Keerthi A, Matthew L, and Hamzah A.

Biography

"Where had I heard this wind beforeChange like this to a deeper roar?What would it take my standing there for,Holding open a restive door,Looking down hill to a frothy shore?Summer was past and the day was past.Sombre clouds in the west were massed.Out on the porch's sagging floor,Leaves got up in a coil and hissed,Blindly struck at my knee and missed.Something sinister in the toneTold me my secret must be known:Word I was in the house aloneSomehow must have gotten abroad,Word I was in my life alone,Word I had no one left but God."

We chose to associate thismelody with the poem since bothof them send off a lonely, sad tone.
