I think the snowman is content because in the house he wouldn't be able to
live. He would die in the house so of course he is content outside.

dan here, I'm 8 and fo to edc and this is how i think is what the poem
means
I think this poems is a good example of how people misinterpret other's
situations it shows that one's view of pain and anguish might be
contradicted by another view

I really like this poem as well. I'm thinking there is a theme of pity to
it, but this is just my opinion.

I live in California and I am doing a paper on this as we speak, this poem
is about a boy feeling sympathetic for the snow man, wanting him to come
inside because the snowman is isolated and whatnot, but the snowman does
not feel isolated at all, he is "none the less content," because the
snowman has no feelings about anything, the writer did a really good job
using personification and imagery to let the readers understand more of the
essence of the poem.

Hi,

i'm from Belgium and I had to read this poem as a project for school.
And I really like this one, you can put so much antogonisms in this poem
like the rich, civilised man (boy) and the man living in nature (snowman)
or any kind of antagonism. That's why I like it so much.

thanks
