“A Brook in the City” by Robert Frost for #NationalPoetryMonth #NPM16

…what about the brook/
That held the house as in an elbow-crook?/
I ask as one who knew the brook, its strength/
And impulse, having dipped a finger-length/
And made it leap my knuckle, having tossed/
A flower to try its currents where they crossed.

Excerpt from “A Brook in the City” by Robert Frost in New Hampshire (Holt, 1923)
