Robert Frost in mud-time


"You'd think I had never felt before / the weight of an
ax-head poised aloft, / the grip
of earth on outspread feet, /
the lift of muscles rocking soft / and smooth and moist in
vernal heat."

Peter Gilbert, the Vermont Humanities Council's executive director, will lead a free talk on spring poems by Robert Frost, left, at the Dorset Inn at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 27, presented with the Dorset Village Library.

Gilbert will focus on three of Frost's most loved poems: ‘Two Tramps in Mud time,' which holds the lines above, ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay' and ‘Mending Wall.'
