“The Pasture” by Frost: “I shan't be gone long.—You come too”


Twice-signed book: Mountain Interval. Later printing. NY: Henry Holt and Company, 1921. Hardcover, 6 x 9, 75 pages. Opposite the frontispiece, Frost pens a two-stanza poem in black ink, "The Pasture," initialed "R. F.," in full: "I'm going out to clean the pasture spring / I'll only stop to rake the leaves away / (And wait to watch the water clear, I may) / I shan't be gone long.—You come too. / I'm going out to fetch the little calf / That's standing by its mother. It's so young / It totters when she licks it with her tongue. / I shan't be gone long.—You come too." Signed again on the title page, “Robert Frost, Baylor College Nov. 18, 1922.” Autographic condition: a mild spot of surface loss to the page with the autograph poem, and a light block of toning to the title page, otherwise fine. Book condition: G+/None. This is a superb example of a Frost handwritten poem as it embodies the style and character that defines his work, exploring man's connection to nature through calm colloquialism. It was first published as an introduction to North of Boston and he often chose it to lead off his readings, inviting the audience to join in a pastoral journey through his poetry. An ideal piece of the utmost desirability. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
