Na/GloPoWriMo Day 30: A Lover’s Quarrel

The Na/GloPoWriMo Day 30 challenge is the last one for this year.  The basic concept is to write a poem based around facts.  Being that it’s the last day of poetry month, I think maybe there is no more fitting a way to bring this month to and end than to write a poem based on facts about Robert Frost.

A Lover's Quarrel
by Michael Romani

After a short contemplation of peace
It seems the month's end brings release
From writing a challenging poem a day
And so without further ado, I find this way
To write a poem based on Robert Frost's life
From his birth to his death and even his wife

In a life lived in acquaintance with night
The road less travelled was more than right
Suggestively named for General Robert E. Lee
He led his life with the same sort of dignity
From youth, he lived a scholar and gentleman
Singularly devoted in his love for one woman

In their young marriage, he failed at farming
Refusing to allow this to be too alarming
He turned his hand back to the art of poetry
Demonstrating a man's will and ingenuity
He had to turn to Britain to gain his fame
And like Hendrix to start to make his name

Thanks to his poetic sense of mental cognition
He gained four Pulitzers and a medal's distinction
Enabling his mark on American culture eloquently
Somehow managing to make a mark on world philosophy
In a life marred by grief and suffering along the way
He had a lover's quarrel with the world to his dying day
