I met a traveler from Arkansas

Robert Frost

 I met a traveler from Arkansas
Who boasted of his state as beautiful
For diamonds and apples. "Diamonds
And apples in commercial quantities?"
I asked him, on my guard. "Oh, yes," he answered,
Off his. The time was evening in the Pullman.
I see the porter's made your bed," I told him.


This is a stanza from Frost's lengthy poem New Hampshire.
