Publisher's Summary

"Home Burial" is a poem about a man and woman whose baby has died. It tells of the burial, how the parents react to this death, and particularly their lack of communication. This piece is especially poignant given that Frost's son, Elliot, died at age 4; his daughter, Elinor Bettina, died when she was a few days old; his wife experienced a miscarriage; two of his daughters suffered mental breakdowns and died; and his son Carol committed suicide.

Good poetry

Love it everytime I listen to it. Liked the beginning more than the ending. #RobertFrost
