Background

A description of the experience

Robert Frost – from The Poetry of Robert Frost

 I could be worse employed
Than as watcher of the void,
Whose part should be to tell
What star if any fell.

Suppose some seed pearl sun
Should be the only one;
Yet still I must report
Some cluster one star short

I should justly hesitate
To frighten church or state
By announcing a star down
From say, the Cross or Crown.

To make sure what star I missed
I should have to check my list
Every star in sight
It might take me all night

The source of the experience
