The newlyweds lived there for seven months with Frost’s mother, where the three also set up a school, which soon failed. It wasn’t until the summer of 1896 that the young couple had a honeymoon, at a small rented cottage in Allenstown, New Hampshire, which Carl Burell had found for them. Burell, Frost’s friend from high school, worked in a box factory in Pembroke. He was also an amateur botanist and spent much of his spare time teaching the Frosts about the region’s native wildflowers. Frost became enthusiastic about botanizing, a rural diversion associated with Romantic poetry in a book Burell lent him, Mrs.

The Frosts were evicted from the Methuen farm for failing to pay rent and letting “nearly three hundred White Wyandottes [chickens]” wander the place. Elinor’s mother and Frost’s grandfather came to the rescue, when Mrs. White found the Derry farm and William Frost Sr. agreed to buy it for his grandson and his growing family. Frost and his wife both loved the Derry farm at first sight (Thompson, Early Years 258–263). Here we might recapitulate the hopes and experiences Frost brought to Derry in the fall of 1900, with the intention of farming and devoting himself to poetry.

In 1900, Frost had suffered the death of his first child, quickly followed by his mother’s death soon after he moved to Derry. Frost himself continued to feel weak and ill. Still fearing that he might have tuberculosis, he may have been haunted by parallels to the fate of his father—seriously ill, somewhat at odds with his wife, unable to support his family adequately. Coincidentally, when Frost suffered a “bout with pneumonia during March and April of 1907 [that] was very nearly fatal,” he was thirty-three years old; his father had died of tuberculosis at thirty-four.
