Where are your beloved lines, people?  I want to read!  Andrea’s from Wallace Stevens were soooo beautiful, they put me in mind of my favorite lines from Frost.  Thanks, Andrea, for sharing that! 

Frost tells us that the chasm of interiority is a macrocosm that, in its fear-factor, could swallow up all the fear you can muster about exteriority — about the cosmos:

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars—on stars where no human race is.
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.
