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.

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.
