Robert Frost One of my girl's English teacher had them study Robert Frost this year and this poem. The teacher told them that this was a poem of regret, that the speaker feels he made the wrong choice. I strongly disagree with that. I think that the speaker realizes that not taking the easy path enriched his life. I'm curious what others think about this poem. Is it about regret or gratitude?
And love And love And love Cupids arrow is not a gift To be found under the tree wrapped in shiny tinsel and pretty smiles Erotic presents are not free No one is exempt from sorrow Always, always, always There is a price But who of us can resist That unexpected look eyes meeting across the room Falling into each other’s soul Love has no limits It’s not on sale When that arrow hits your heart You are dead and life begins.
