Poems

Of Frost and Foliage

“O hushed October morning mild,

Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;

Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,

Should waste them all.”

from “October” by Robert Frost

The people who know such things predict that this week will be peak foliage-looking-time here in northern New Hampshire. The tour buses are already lining the streets of downtown, and cell phone cameras are as prevalent as the squirrels that are scampering everywhere: make haste!

The grounds and trail at The Frost Place are always open for visitors, as is the front porch. While we have not been able to open the museum this year, we have big plans for next year. In the meantime, though, please stop awhile and enjoy the fantastic view. Even though the foliage is not as resplendent as it sometimes is due to drought conditions this summer, it’s still pretty darn amazing.

“You come, too…”
