What Frost is saying here is simple, what is is saying is that if you know
him as a youth and he moved and the two of you meet later in life he would
be the same that you knew when he was a youth

I think hes talking about growing up, the trees represent boundries that
shelter us, but hold us back(parents). and hes going out and experiencing
the world.

I think frost is talking about leaving his town or city to set out on a
journey and to get in touch with a spirtual side of himself and to really
apreciate nature more.....im not a hippie either...

From reading "into my own" i was a lilttle confused at first about what
really happen i was trying
to think about what robert frost was refering to but then after reading his
poem over and
over,his poem made more sense that i could ever imagine.After the death of
this family he
became so lost,confused,alone and felt he was an outcase,standing like a
widow tree in a dark
path ,whom people saw but didnt notice,tryin to over come every bad
obsticle in his llife,finding
a way out with no fear in his soul but he's unsure of what holds in
reality, knowing that where
ever he might be the dark memory will always follow but it dont matter
where you are or what
you do,as long u hold the people you love close to your heart you'r never

I think that the trees in this poem refer to the unknown, and that someday
the person in the poem will have to, willingly, enter the unknown in some
sort of adventure. Then people will miss him and set out to look for him
thinking he will be different when they find him. But after finding him
they see that he is more sure of himself and of life and that it was a good
thing for him to leave and explore because it resulted in this new

i think that the the first verse that the trees represent time and
darkness.The second verse that he feels that he cant get away from this
feeling. Third that he dosnt want to go back once the darkness has him he
wants to be alone and finally he hasnt changed hes always felt this way
deep down

Those "trees" that are "so old and firm they scarcely show the breeze"
refer to ignorant people who refuse to change their views. This is a poem
about irony. Frost is saying that anyone whose views don't coincide with
his is close-minded, but he doesn't see any reason why he should change his

I like the end of this poem more than anything. The rest of it kind of
confused me.
