This short collection was published as part of The Complete Poems of Robert Frost 1949, just two years after Steeple Bush. Now seventy-five years old, Frost continued to travel, teach, and receive honorary degrees. The two long poems, “Choose Something Like a Star” and “From Plane to Plane,” are rich in both observational and theoretical astronomical content, with references to such things as the chemical and physical properties of stars and the identities of the constellations comprising the Zodiac.

Keywords:   Robert Frost, Nature, Science, Astronomy, Farming, Technology
