I think this poem was about a man that is finishing traveling on a road and
is telling what he sees. At the end of the poem, the traveler finally
finishes the road.

I would just like to say that the poem reflects certain aspects of the
Great Depression. The poem shows hardships and dismal points in life(that
people living during the Great Depression might have experienced). It tells
us that Americans keep on moving, keep on pushing forward, until they reach
their goals or even their homes. I think it is an incredible poem that
truthfully shows struggling during life and human emotion.

This poem signifies what, I think, all of us feel in the end. When it comes
down to it, as we grow old and weary of this world, we look back and we see
everything that we've done, everything we've accomplished - achieved - and
we realize that certain things weren't worth it. We regret things and they
become "the gravel under foot." I think that older people really identify
with this poem because they are the ones who have experienced life and
walked that road. To many of advancing years, life does indeed simply
become a trudging along until you look for the "birds swift of wing" - the
end of the road.
