Wow, when Robert Frost wrote this sonnet, he must of been on crack.
Firstly, he was no where near the age of dying. Why then, in the poem was
he running out of time (sand pouring). Other than that, poem is cool

I would like to comment on Hardwin's comment. It is obviously a joke, and
I'm sure Mr. Frost would have been amused; unfortunately, students looking
for intelligent life online may get sucked into it.

I think that the first stanza is about his memories becoming old and
unchangable. The second stanza is about his time running out because the
last line is like an hourglass, the sand pouring down. Then he realizes he
doesn't need to change his memories, and the last stanza is saying he won't

THE DARK,VAST TREES MIGHT REPRESENT THE BODY OF IDEAS,
EXPERIENCE,SENSATION AVAILABLE TO THE BOLD PILGRIM...
THE JOURNEY INTO THE JOURNEY... THE EDGE OF DOOM MIGHT BE THE BOUNDRIES OF
SANITY AND THE INVITATION TO FOLLOW
IS STILL AVAILABLE.......JOY,JOY,JOY...

“There is something in this poem or something that this poem points to that
resonates here. In spite of the unending cavalcade of life the author
points to stillness where everything blends into a sense of oneness and
grace. In a way, which is hard to express, the trees & I share something at
the core of our being that I can’t quite seem to get a grasp of but that I
recognise unequivocally. So that though I may gallop off into a plethora of
scenes throughout life something in the magnificence of the trees causes me
to pause and pulls me back to a place that is my undoing.” Re: The Sound of
Trees & Into my Own.
