Robert Frost - Tree at My Window (1929)

The Tree at My Window - Robert Frost 1929

"Tree at My Window" Robert Frost (1928) *The "Tree at My Window" photographed is a Sugar Maple which stood directly outside Robert Frost's kitchen windows in at his farm in Derry, NY. Robert Frost resided at the Derry farm with his family from 1900 to 1911.  The maple tree was removed on September 29, 2007.

Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on;
But let there never be curtain drawn
Between you and me.
Vague dream-head lifted out of the ground,
And thing next most diffuse to cloud,
Not all your light tongues talking aloud
Could be profound.
But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed,
And if you have seen me when I slept,
You have seen me when I was taken and swept
And all but lost.
That day she put our heads together,
Fate had her imagination about her,
Your head so much concerned with outer,
Mine with inner, weather.
