Sitting Next To a Legend

Sitting on a bench

On a cloudy day

Watching the sky.

Leaning over I see

The paper of a genius,

A black-and-white masterpiece

If only I could borrow

The creativity of the man

Sitting next to me.

I hang on to his arm,

Hoping he will tell me something,

But he remains silent.

In my heart I know

I will never learn anything

From this-

A statue is all he is,

A piece of metal

Mimicking the real Robert Frost.

But still I wish

This legend could speak,

So I may hear his words.

This will certify that the above work is completely original.
