Home Burial is a poem about a man and woman whose baby has died. It tells of the burial, how the parents react to this death, particularly their lack of communication. This piece is especially poignant given that Frost's son Elliot died at age 4, his daughter Elinor Bettina died when she was a few days old, his wife experienced a miscarriage, two of his daughters suffered mental breakdowns and died, and his son Carol committed suicide.

Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 - January 29, 1963) was an American poet. His work frequently used themes from rural life in New England, using the setting to examine complex social and philosophical themes. A popular and often-quoted poet, Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes.

John Hitchcock, a resident of Alexandria, Virginia, has narrated numerous outdoor adventure, military and western audiobooks. He frequently performs in commercials and industrial productions, as well as on-stage in the Washington, DC area.
