Or maybe you're not thinking deeply enough. Chances are if he's making a
reference to a Roman or Greek goddess, then there probably is some deeper
meaning. Robert Frost did not become a well-known and well-respected poet
by writing simply about stars and nature. That's not interesting. It's his
use of imagery, symbolism and metaphor that made him such a phenomenal
poet.

The poem clearly contrasts the placidity of the stars, blind observers of
human conflict as well as a means of telling the future (Frost clearly
references astrology ). The stars are amoral. They guide us into the
ground by destiny without being aware of their higher function.

This poem from Robert Frost is about humans and Minerva “the stars” and
goddess of wisdom.
How countlessly they congregate – There are so many gathered that it’s
impossible to count them. Means they are present.
O'er our tumultuous snow - Tumultuous means noisy and disorderly so he’s
probably just talking about the humans on earth in general and how chaotic
and disorderly they are. O’er means over, Minerva is over us.
Keenness for our fate - Meaning grief for our fate.

Our faltering few steps on - Faltering is to be unsteady in purpose due to
lack of courage or will so It means that humans hesitate and are do
unsteady actions.

And yet with neither love nor hate - Minerva “the stars” doesn’t help us to
stay alive or anything, but he has never shown hate either, she is
impartial.

Minerva's snow-white marble eyes – Minerva is the goddess of wisdom, she
judges what is right and what has to happen.
Without the gift of sight – She can’t see us to help us

Jeepers! You guys are all thinking too deeply. Its just talking about the
stars! frost is a pascal poet. he talks about the country side, nature,
horses. stars
countlessly they congregate- just look at the stars. There are too many to
count and they are all clustered there, They congregate together.
O'er the tumultuous snow-hes again describing them how theyre noisy and
disorderly. Theyre not arrnged in some type of pattern. DISORDERLY.
u can find shapes in them, some as tall as trees. Theyre invisible to us at
dawn. they dont love or hate. they are as white as miinervas eyes.(ivory)
and they of course cannot see!
