A Passing Glimpse



There is a bit of playful tone in the early this poem, as the narrator struggles to identify flowers outside the window, succeeding only in identifying what they're not, and wonders if "something was brushed across (his) mind that no one on Earth will ever find".

Like many of Robert Frost's poems, "A Passing Glimpse"contains a direct moral at the very end. "Heaven gives its glimpses to those not in a position to look too close."
