Among my readings (my walls are lined with 22 bookcases), I particularly enjoy the poems of New England poet, Robert Frost. To me, he is the New England counterpart of Rob Donn Mackay and Rabbie Burns.

New England (six north-eastern states of the USA) and New Scotland (the English translation of Nova Scotia) have many ties. Governor Lawrence offered settlers of New England the cultivated land vacated when the Acadiens were expelled from Nova Scotia in the 1750s. Children and grand-children of the early pioneers in Nova Scotia went down to New England to secure work and adventure for themselves and their families. The landscape is much like that in Nova Scotia.

Against this setting, I offer you one of my favourite poems by Robert Frost, the The Code, and one (I admit) I at times put into practice. It is not really wise to expect me to do too much too quickly! Perhaps it is my B.Sc. in Mathematics that enables me to return whatever to whoever with compound interest?

Another poem, The Road Not Taken leaves room for contemplative thought. More of Frost's poetry can be read at the website below.
