” Even the bravest that are slain
Shall not dissemble their surprise
On waking to find valor reign,
Even as on earth, in paradise;
And where they sought without the sword
Wide fields of asphodel fore’er.
To find that the uttmost reward
Of daring should be still to dare.
The light of heaven falls whole and white
and is not shattered into dyes,
The light for ever is morning light;
The hills are verdured pasture-wise;
The angel hosts with freshness go,
And seek with laughter what to brave;—
And binding all is the hushed snow
Of the far-distant breaking wave.
And from a cliff-top is proclaimed
The gathering of the souls for birth,
The trial of existence named,
The obscuration upon earth.
And the slant spirits trooping by
In streams and cross-and counter-streams
Can but give ear to that sweet cry For its suggestion of what dreams!”
” He [Robert Frost] has bequeathed his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding.” —-John F. Kennedy
