The Tuft of Flowers By Robert Frost

The Tuft of Flowers
By Robert Frost

I went to turn the grass once after one
Who mowed it in the dew before the sun.

The dew was gone that made his blade so keen
Before I came to view the levelled scene.

I looked for him behind an isle of trees;
I listened for his whetstone on the breeze.

But he had gone his way, the grass all mown,
And I must be, as he had been,—alone,

‘As all must be,’ I said within my heart,
‘Whether they work together or apart.’

But as I said it, swift there passed me by
On noiseless wing a ‘wildered butterfly,

Seeking with memories grown dim o’er night
Some resting flower of yesterday’s delight.

And once I marked his flight go round and round,
As where some flower lay withering on the ground.

And then he flew as far as eye could see,
And then on tremulous wing came back to me.

I thought of questions that have no reply,
And would have turned to toss the grass to dry;

But he turned first, and led my eye to look
At a tall tuft of flowers beside a brook,

A leaping tongue of bloom the scythe had spared
Beside a reedy brook the scythe had bared.

I left my place to know them by their name,
Finding them butterfly weed when I came.

The mower in the dew had loved them thus,
By leaving them to flourish, not for us,

Nor yet to draw one thought of ours to him.
But from sheer morning gladness at the brim.

The butterfly and I had lit upon,
Nevertheless, a message from the dawn,

That made me hear the wakening birds around,
And hear his long scythe whispering to the ground,

And feel a spirit kindred to my own;
So that henceforth I worked no more alone;

But glad with him, I worked as with his aid,
And weary, sought at noon with him the shade;

And dreaming, as it were, held brotherly speech
With one whose thought I had not hoped to reach.

‘Men work together,’ I told him from the heart,
‘Whether they work together or apart.’

    Thanks for your exciting article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally the result of the inhalation of material from asbestos fiber, which is a dangerous material. It can be commonly viewed among workers in the engineering industry with long exposure to asbestos. It’s also caused by living in asbestos covered buildings for a long time of time, Genes plays an important role, and some persons are more vulnerable on the risk than others.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Furthermore, i believe that mesothelioma cancer is a extraordinary form of many forms of cancer that is usually found in those people previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous tissue form in the mesothelium, which is a safety lining which covers almost all of the body’s bodily organs. These cells usually form while in the lining of your lungs, belly, or the sac that encircles the heart. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

    One thing I’d prefer to say is the fact car insurance canceling is a terrifying experience so if you’re doing the proper things like a driver you simply won’t get one. A number of people do have the notice that they have been officially dumped by their particular insurance company they have to scramble to get further insurance after having a cancellation. Cheap auto insurance rates are often hard to get after the cancellation. Having the main reasons for auto insurance cancellation can help car owners prevent burning off one of the most important privileges accessible. Thanks for the suggestions shared through your blog.

    Based on my study, after a property foreclosure home is offered at an auction, it is common for the borrower to be able to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the financial loan. There are many lenders who seek to have all service fees and liens paid back by the subsequent buyer. However, depending on selected programs, legislation, and state laws and regulations there may be quite a few loans that are not easily resolved through the switch of loans. Therefore, the obligation still lies on the client that has got his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this weblog.
