A Late Walk

flower
Listen!
Robert Frost's "A Late Walk" is a seasonal poem that captures that bit of sadness many of us feel when nature "closes shop" for the fall. My favorite part of the poem, though, is not the abundant imagery of late autumn chill and dreariness; it's the final image of plucking "the last remaining aster flower to carry again to you". My thoughts are drawn to that unnamed "you" who will receive the flower.
