"I know not who these mute folks are who share this unlit place with me" I
believe that frost is speaking from the point of view of a man already
dead. Possably even foreseeing his own death.Frost is Known for his ability
to mix the cycle of mans life with that of natures, here again he has
splendly meshed the natural rythm of both.

This poem is something worth reading over and over again... i enjoyed the
use of words he chose along with how he made the rhythm run so smoothly.
One of my favorite from him so far.

I interpreted this poem to be about Frost revisiting his old house that he
had once had many memories, loved ones, and a lot of his life. He is seeing
it again and expressing his lonlyness. He is a lonly man and says he will
forever be there with them and never forget. The imagery he uses shows how
important this place was to him and the ppl in it. He had good memories but
then again they are only memories and cannot be relived. Hope that helps
some ppl.

i think i found out what the poem is actually talking about, in the first
part he's just talking about the old house thats has been forgotten, and
then it goes on to the the grave yard, that has also been forgotten, and
then he talks about the forgotten people lying inside the grave yard

I'm 14, and I'm using this poem as part of my essay on ghost stories. When
I first read it, I didn't quite understand it - I imagined it, but I didn't
understand what my thoughts meant. After reading it through a few times, it
became clear to me that there are several possibilities, not just one
particular one. My initial thought was that the persona's a ghost, he's
full of sorrow from the loss of his life, his family, his home that has now
been captured by nature. He's sad that the house has been left derelict,
no-one to care for it, but happy that he's still the only occupant, apart
from the two other ghosts, his family that also died.
It's very how Robert Frost has written this, I love the rhyming, the
pattern of the lines and the stanzas. In a way, I wish it could be more
clear, but then I like the mystery of it, it's so intriguing.

I don't know why people like the ones who last commented even bother.
Robert Frost was a great poet, and everyone stands to learn something from
his works. So if your not serious why comment at all?
