  • Karla - If you like this… check out O.A.R.’s song ‘To Earthward’… It is basically word-for-word of… (oh crap… NyQuil brain is holding me back today)… Oh yeah – Robert Frost! Awesome song… actually – it may be tough to find now, they had to take it off of their album, apparently they didn’t have Mr. Frost’s permission 🙂 but you may be able to dig it up somewhere! Gorgeous poem… and really good song!
