Lot Essay

This image was commissioned by the Franklin Mint in 1974 for a series of sterling silver medals honoring Robert Frost. Each of the twelve medals represented a Frost poem, the present illustrating the beginning of Birches. The poem begins, "When I see birches bend to left and right/ across the lines of straighter darker trees,/ I like to think some boy's been swinging them."
