"The footpath down to the well is healed."

One of the most beautiful lines ever written! It speaks of the passage of
time with elegance

Robert Frost uses a beautiful rhyme scheme, with luscious imagry. Although
it gives descriptive details, it is a dark poem in which Frost seems to
release his fearful energy. There is little repetition in this poem of his,
unlike some of his other works, "gold never lasts". This type of poem
creates a simple, yet elegant aproach to let the viewers imagine the
horrors of this horrible house. Frost uses words that makes this come
alive.

Robert in this poem represented the Amrican poeple who were at that time
feeling lonly . I think because they were from different countries and this
makes them losing communication with each other and accordingly feel lonly
.

It has been quite some time since I have read this piece. The poem haunts
me still,in a subtle way, as it should and was intended. Live now, reflect,
appreciate, and learn. All fires eventually burn out leaving charred dust
and ashes in the silent cold night where they once were. Frost took the
time too analize many facets of life and I'm grateful for all his efforts
including this one.

This poem is written in a reflective mood. The Poetic seeks to show the
stillness and the peace of death. The house that the ghost used to live in
has changed. The path which was trodden has returned to its original state.
Reference made to the bird is that it is still alive and they (the dead
people) are mute folks. no words can escape their mouths anymore. All
points to the peace that surrounds death.
