(It is "worsted grey," not "worsted grady!")

For many lovers, Robert Frost shows how beautiful love can be, for it makes
people change. It shows how many people change for the one they love, not
intentionally, but mentally. Many may think of November to be a season of
dying, not beauty, but have "she" in the narrator's life during Autumn
makes him love it. In line,
They could NOT be talking about the Autumn but about herself, like many
lovers question their partner for their love for them.

I feel the poems relates to his wife. The wording/meanings are
straight-forward but the first line, last verse bugs me. Why does he say
'Not yesterday I learned to know'? Can someone enlighten me? Also 'were'
should be 'was' shouldn't it?! carolineglen.com

the first time i read the poem, all i could think about was what he used to
set a mood. Usually, when an author uses sentences like "faded earth, heavy
sky," it is to set a gloomy mood in which he succeeds. I thought it was
about a woman who was changing his life, and broadening his view of the
world. But then I read it again and again, and i think that the poem really
has to do with him, and only him. He can choose to dislike and begrudge
change, gloominess, and desolation. But he doesnt- he learns to embrace it
and realize that theres something meaningful in every detail. He can't deny
his sorrow, but he doesn't succumb to it, he uses it to change his views on
the world. It can be interpreted many ways though- and i think the way that
people see it is what tells more about them, which i think poets are always
trying to tell their readers.

Fiona Cameron noted two transcription mistakes. There is another, The
next to the last line should read, :|"But it were vain to tell her so," not
"he so". If you are going to post poetry, make certain to quote it
accurately, or don't post it.
