Transcript of "Poetry is not

"Into my Own" by Robert Frost
"Into my own" by Robert Frost
Robert Frost
Exploring the poem
THIRD QUATRAIN:
I do not see why I should e’er turn back,
Or those should not
set forth upon my track

To overtake me, who should miss me here
And
long to know if still I held them dear.

To seek truth...
...by exploring the vastness of the open land.
FINAL RHYMING COUPLET
They would not find me changed from him they knew—
Only more sure of all I thought was true.
Graduating Class of 2013
We have come to the time to take all that we have learnt, close this chapter of our lives and open the window to whatever tomorrow may bring.
"Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before."
Audre Lorde


ONE of my wishes is that those dark trees,
So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,
Were not, as ’twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away unto the edge of doom.

I should not be withheld but that some day 5
Into their vastness I should steal away,
Fearless of ever finding open land,
Or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.

I do not see why I should e’er turn back,
Or those should not set forth upon my track 10
To overtake me, who should miss me here
And long to know if still I held them dear.

They would not find me changed from him they knew—
Only more sure of all I thought was true.

IDENTITY
FIRST QUATRAIN:
ONE of my wishes is that those
dark trees,

So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,
Were not, as ’twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away
unto the edge of doom.
I should not be withheld but that some day
Into their vastness I should
steal away,
Fearless
of ever finding open land,
Or highway where the
slow wheel
pours the sand.

SECOND QUATRAIN:
Creates the imagery of an hourglass
Symbolic of time
Time will be his only master
COURAGE
CURIOSITY
"Road not Taken" (1916)
by Robert Frost
FEARLESSNESS
Shakespearean LANGUAGE
Were not, as
’twere,
the merest mask of gloom (line 3)
I do not see why I should
e’er
turn back (line 9)
Frost adds uncertainty to the narrator's bravado
The boy is oblivious to what life will bring
