Home: The Toast

winter“The Goblin Market,” Christina Rossetti.

I thought it was about goblins.


“Fire and Ice,” Robert Frost.

I thought it was about fire and ice!


“Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening,” Robert Frost.

Some sad guy is looking at snow. Nothing else to see here!! Then someone said ‘What if this was, like, Santa?’ and that blew my mind, so that’s what I think it is about now.


“After Apple-Picking, Robert Frost.

I still think it’s about picking apples!


“The Road Not Taken,” Robert Frost.

Someone explained it to me that it’s about how the roads are actually the same, so he hasn’t actually made the right choices, or something? I just don’t understand Robert Frost, is what I’m coming to realize. That, or I have very middlebrow taste in poetry, which is also extremely possible.
