Could be a Robert Frost line. Just saw the one-actor play "This Verse Business" about Robert Frost. (see www.thisversebusiness.com
) and had a nice get together with the actor and playwright (G. Clapp knows Nancy from high school days) after the show. Highly recommended, but then you may have seen it already.
If so, it was subconscious. RF is my favorite poet, however. Gordon Clapp looks like a twin brother. We saw a play about him/his poetry at New England College 5-6 years ago. The actors had impressive memories indeed.
