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!

combined...you are all wrong about what it is about!

stars help guide us through this chaotic life. they assure us of a place of
peace (with God).

It could be about human frailty, as already stated, but I actually think
this about Frost's skepticism of fate. Often in poetry, "stars" are
synonomous with fate. With this poem, Frost is calling the stars "blind."
"How countlessly they congregate o'er the tumultuous snow." He sites the
mad chaos (the tumultuous snow) of the world as proof against the existence
of fate.

It's about how frail life is.
How countlessly they congregate - There's alot of people that die, and keep
O'er our tumultuous snow - Just talking about the earth and how unsteady it
is. tumultuous means noisy and disorderly so it's prolly just talking about
the human race on earth in general and how disorderly we are in our ways.
Keen-ness for our fate - meaning greif for our fate.
our faltering few steps on - faltering is to be unsteady in purpose due to
lack of courage or will.

And yet with neither love nor hate, [God doesn't help us to stay alive or
anything, but he's never shown hate.]
Those stars like some snow-white
Minerva's snow-white marble eyes [Goddess of wisdom of course.]
Without the gift of sight. [failure to see how precious our lives really
