New-old poem by Bob Frost

From the NY Times:

A previously unknown poem by Robert Frost (1874-1963) is to be published on Monday in The Virginia Quarterly Review. Found by a graduate student, Robert Stilling, in a collection of books and manuscripts bought by the University of Virginia, the 35-line poem, "War Thoughts at Home," was written in 1918, not long after Frost's friend and fellow poet Edward Thomas was killed in World War I. It deals with a woman who learns that her husband has died in combat. In the Virginia review it is accompanied by critical essays by Glyn Maxwell, poetry editor of The New Republic, and by Mr. Stilling.

Sounds like a another cheery one from our friend Bob.
