Something there is that doesn’t love a wall

When I saw the images of Trump’s new border wall being blown over by the wind earlier this week, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the poem Mending Wall by the late American poet, Robert Frost.

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

The only difference in this case is that the frozen-ground-swell was the wind. Maybe the world should take note of Robert Frost’s implied message and listen more carefully to advice from nature!

    Frost’s poem has often come to mind since Trump took office.

    • Jane Fritz says:

      Great minds think alike! 😏 This is a low point for modern liberal democracy and for the world. We need the words of writers like Robert Frost, past and present, to sustain us through these troubling times.

  2. Good post, nature has a way of speaking out.
