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.

This poem is stupid. It makes me feel gay. I don't like it at all.

"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.
