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.

i do not know much about robert ,but according to this poem, i should say
that he expresses something which is quite somber, sort of loneliness("who
should miss me here"),but at the end, we can find something more bright, or
i should say, hope,cause he says "...more sure of all i thugh was ture.but
personally, this poem actually makes me quite blue, and mow i am doubting
that whether what i am doing now is worthy,for life is a hourglass! there
is no time for us to waste!

i take this poem literally. This poem makes perfect sense. I dont perceive
it as death or running away. I see it as his simple longing to be alone
with nature and to experience the beautiful simplicity and complexity that
it is. If you've never been so far into the wilderness that there isnt any
sign of humans you have no idea the feeling im or "he" i should say is
talking about.

this comment is to Rocky Balboa ..... i don't understand how you can say
poets have no life because most of the times poetry is a passion for the
poet and it helps them get through the rough times and ther life and it
help ther people who read it and if you think money meands more than loving
what you do then good for you i hope you just have a wonderful time living
a boring life trying to become rich

in my opinion, robert frost could have been a little more specific. I mean,
what is this poem about? I can't even read it! Maybe its my dyslexia or
maybe its just Robert Frost truly stinks!. What kind of person would choose
to be a poet. In my opinion, poets have no life. No life at all. They get
paid diddly-squat, and it takes them 2 months to make a poem!. They have to
carry their little dinky notebook all around in case they have an idea.
What will they write about, a drunk guy throwing up? Poets definatly have
no life. Robert Frost was definatly a teachers pet when he was a kid.I bet
he even got bullied!He was probably 30 before he got a girlfriend. Total
Nerd. All poets are nerds probably, except the cool ones.

There are many schloars that think Robert Frost was Bipolar. This poem, so
beautifully sad, relates to me the longing to be free from the pain that so
often accompanies depression and suicidal thoughts.
