Robert Frost Five Poems

I think Robert Frost is a understandable, but yet an unconventional poet. Frost wrote in his own style, and as a result, he took quite a bit of heat from the critics of his period. Frost has an elegant style of writing descriptive and understandable poems. I am going to tell you about the five best pieces he has ever written.
First off, “A Considerable Speck” is a unusual poem about Frost noticing a tiny speck on his paper. Upon further observation, Frost notices that the speck is actually a extremely tiny mite, struggling to avoid being crushed by Frost’s pen.

also in the fourth stanza the word say is repeated three times within two lines (Silberner 109). The rhyme scheme of “Ghost House” is AABBA CCDDC and that pattern continues for every stanza (Silberner 110). The alliteration and the rhyme scheme of this poem make it flow very smoothly.
“Fire and Ice” is a poem about how the world will end. Frost is debating with himself as to whether or not the world will be destroyed by fire or ice.
