By Jordan Brunk, Amazing Kid from History Editor and Contributing Writer


Robert Frost is an amazing kid from history. He shows us that we can become successful at a young age if we pursue our dreams and persevere through the hard times. He was born on March 26, 1874, in San Francisco, California. Inspired by his father, who had a full-time career as a journalist, Frost always enjoyed writing as a child and also while he was in high school.

Throughout his childhood, Frost wrote poems and stories about his surroundings such as snow, trees, and darkness. He continued to work and later mastered his skills as a writer. Sadly, Frost’s father passed away from an illness when he was just 11 years old. Through this rough time in Frost’s life, he learned to write about death, tragedies, loss, and sickness. Some of these poems and stories later became famous for their beautiful concepts and are still highly valued to this day.

After his father died, Frost and his family moved to Massachusetts. This led him to write more poems about outside environments and types of weather. Once Frost entered high school, he already had bundles of written work and kept on writing because he was passionate about it. His school newspaper recognized his extreme talent in writing words and published some of his first poems. He knew that writing was important to him, so he put everything he had into becoming a better writer. He never gave up what he loved to do even when someone he loved was gone.

After graduating high school, Frost continued his career as a writer. He sold some of his poems to newspapers, so they could print them. He started to become an inspiration to several other aspiring authors and poets. He also attended Harvard University to learn more about writing.

Eventually, Frost married a wonderful woman named Elinor. They lived in the New Hampshire countryside for many years with their children as Frost wrote each day about life in the countryside and several other topics. After a little over a decade, they decided to move to England, so they could find more publishing options with poetry. This is where Frost became highly recognized for his work.

Almost everyone in the writing world has heard of the great poet Robert Frost. And it all started when he was young. He shows us that what we do or start now can greatly influence the future and success. He tells us that tragedies are sad, yet writing and other passions can help to ease the pain and give us a way to express our feelings. We can look up to Frost as an example to never give up on our hopes and dreams in the world because he never gave up writing. He also shows us that we can accomplish anything we put our minds to, whether it be writing or another interest. In this way, Robert Frost truly is an amazing kid from history.
