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.

IM NOT SURE WEATHER HE IS THINKING ABOUT SUICIDE OR RUNNING AWAY FROM
HOME... I THINK THAT THE TREES ARE MEMORIES AND EXPERIENCES, THEY ARE THE
REASONS WHY HE WANTS TO RUN AWAY/COMMIT SUICIDE(WHICH EVER IT MIGHT BE). HE
WISHED THAT THOSE MEMORIES WOULD STOP HIM FROM HIS DECISION. INSTEAD OF
PUSHING HIM TO IT.

HES GOING TO COMMIT SUICIDE/RUN AWAY "INTO THEIR WASTNESS I SHOULD STEAL
WAY,"
HE DOESN'T CARE WERE HE GOES AS LONG AS HE GETS AWAY FROM THE "TREES"
HE FINDS NO REASON TO TURN BACK, WONDERS IF HELL BE MISSED BLAH BLAH BLAH
ALL THE TYPICAL THOUGHT OF SUICIDE AND/OR RUNNING AWAY...

THE ONLY THING THAT GETS ME IS THAT THEY WILL FIND HIM THE SAME AS B4, SO I
DONT KNOW IF HES GONE OUT TO "FIND HIMSELF" OR THAT NO ONE WILL LOOK FOR
HIM SO IN REALITY HE WAS RIGHT TO COMMIT SUICIDE...

I would like to comment on G.Kats's comment, you go! Robert Frost is a
wonderful poet. All those stupid people that cant get over them selve's,
that think that he was on crack. You guys are the one's on crack, meth,
needles, or whatever you are on these days its hard to keep up, anyways,
like you said G.Kats, you all just need to stick with the comic's in the
newspaper or if thats too complicated, maybe you should go get yourself a
picture book, but then again, that could be just as hard as anything else
for you.


Thanks for your time,

Frost was one of our greatest writers. you idiots who think he was on crack
or drugs are showing your lack of literacy. why not just stick to reading
the funny papers... after all you may be able to follow them.that is if
they aren't too complicated.

I beleive that Robert Frost was too depressed to be a friend of maryjane,
bu deffenently a crack head on a meth benge.Hopefully no one is that sad.
