A Question

A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

A voice…..what it is? …look me in the stars! The rest part is left for others to examine …A great poem by the great poet Robert Frost
A painful answer for all of natures beautiful sights.
A great thought provoking poem. In Vedic philosophy it is said that Supreme Being created the Universe for its own enjoyment- Ananda. Looking at our pain and suffering I wonder if It asks that question?
Questions of love and life. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Hmmm... I wonder if Frost himself could identify the “me” in this poem. What it brings to mind for me is the description of the incarnation (and what followed) of St Paul in Philippians 2: 5-11. -GK
