National Poetry Month: Robert Frost

Here is another wonderful poem for National Poetry Month by the ever-amazing Robert Frost. I also really enjoyed Vincent’s reading of this from the television series Beauty and the Beast from the 80’s.

Acquainted with the Night

by Robert Frost

I have been one acquainted with the night. 
I have walked out in rain—and back in rain. 
I have outwalked the furthest city light. 

I have looked down the saddest city lane. 
I have passed by the watchman on his beat 
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain. 

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet 
When far away an interrupted cry 
Came over houses from another street, 

But not to call me back or say good-bye; 
And further still at an unearthly height, 
One luminary clock against the sky 

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right 
I have been one acquainted with the night.
