Poetry Quote of the Day: Robert Frost

"A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness." ---Robert Frost

  1. What a beautiful quote! So true...

  2. This is actually one of my all time favorite quotes. The lump in the throat. Isn't that funny -- it begins with a lump in the throat and then, often, it leaves you that way, too...

  3. I'm really enjoying this sharing of quotable words. Glad you all are too. :)
