Letter to the editor: Read poet Frost's 'Mending Wall'

Sometimes writers take phrases out of context and use famous names to confirm their point of view. This was the case last Thursday in Pete Abler's column, "Good fences do make good neighbors."

If one reads the entire poem, "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost (m.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/mending-wall), you discover that Frost really doesn't like the wall between him and his neighbor.

"Something there is that doesn't like a wall," he says!

So, please Mr. Abler, when criticizing persons who disagree with your view of border security, don't put Robert Frost in your camp.
