The University of Virginia is boasting about one of its graduate students and an incredible find.

A UVa student discovered an unpublished poem written by Robert Frost. The graduate student was doing research in the small collections library on grounds when he came across the poem "War Thoughts at Home."

The poem proved to be authentic, and Frost scholars say it was written more than 80 years ago.

The exhibit featuring samples of Frost's work, including the newly discovered piece, will be on display at Uva's Small Collections Library until early 2007.
