Robert Frost line of the day

I'm a little behind on my New Yorker issues, although isn't that almost a description of any New Yorker subscriber?

From a review of the Letters of Robert Frost in the February 10 issues comes this line, which Dan Chiasson called "one of his greatest statements about poetry":

"Like a piece of ice on a hot stove the poem must ride on its own melting."
