“My November Guest”, by Robert Frost

“My November Guest”, is a beautiful poem by the American poet Robert Frost. I find the interpretation of Frost’s poem, contained in the above video a convincing one, (that the poem is, in part at least a response to the feelings of melancholy flowing from the season of autumn itself. Beauty is so often tinged with melancholy, for we know that the beautiful flower will fade and die, and that friendship dies with the friend (although, in the latter case the feelings will live on in the heart of the person who is left behind).
