A collection of poems by Robert Frost.

I have read a little bit of poems from Frost before, and quite enjoyed them. This introduced me to even more of his work. I felt like I got some new favourites while reading this, but less than I expected.

I was surprised to find some poetry that were almost like little stories in the way they were written, out of which I enjoyed "The Mountain" the most. "Fire and Ice" is one of my all-time favourite poems, and it was nice to read it again, even though I know it by heart.

One of my new favourites is "Snow Dust", which goes like this:

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I rued

I felt like the poems I read was very either or for me; either I loved it, or I didn't care for it. It was definitely worth the time it took to read though, as I find his style elegant and I like how he keeps things simple without loosing any depth. 

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys poetry, and if you already like some of Frosts work, give this a go. I'm sure you'll find a new favourite or two.
