The Robert Frost
Youth Poet Program
Attention New Hampshire Fourth Grade Teachers and Students!It was New Hampshire that inspired Robert Frost to create much of his poetry. Its rich history, natural beauty and remarkable people inspire all of us in unique ways.
The Robert Frost Youth Poet Program offers New Hampshire fourth grade students in public and private schools the opportunity to express their feelings about New Hampshire in a poem. The sponsors of the program hope to increase appreciation of our state's natural and cultural resources, and also hope to encourage students to discover the poet in themselves.
The Robert Frost Farm State Historic Site and national Historic Landmark is located on Route 28 in Derry, New Hampshire. This was the home of Robert L. Frost and his family from 1900-1909. On the property are many sites Frost wrote about in his poetry, including "Mending Wall," "Hyla Brook," and "The Pasture."
