Headstone of Robert Frost

As soon as I began to write, I fell into the semi-trance under which some of my best work has been written, but which usually requires more time and effort to achieve than it did today. Being in Frost’s presence lifted my creative mind to a level of inspiration that I am only able to reach under near-perfect circumstances. Here is the result:
