It was a cold and sunny day in 1961 and the 87 year old Frost could not read his poem," Dedication", that he wrote in honor of this special day for he was blinded by the bright sun. He fumpered on the podium because he could not see it and did not know it well. Richard Nixon came and held his top hat to block the sun for Mr.Frost who was extremely old and having problems. Instead, he recited from memory an oft requested poem, "The Gift Outright."
