Why to find meanings in a poem? A poem is nothing more than a depiction of
mood that poet experiences at one point of time.

Apple picking symbolically means human aims and aspirations.Apple picking
is just like harvesting.In the harvest season man gets the result of his
seasonal activities.Similarly apple picking as a metaphor means the life
long activities of man.The poet has used such a title to emphasize us that
man strives for his aspiration but they remain unfulfilled to him till his
last breath.
The poet wants to tell us that every man in this mortal world has certain
aims and aspirations.He lives by these aspirations.But as soon as death
knocks at his door,all his efforts come to a halt and they fall just like
the frost,which melts when sunlight falls on it.=

The perfect chronology of life's gloomy picture is brought in this
poem.Let's get simply-we 've desire,dreams and goals that seem the hard
sought motive of ours.And,we follow a course of actions to drive us through
that.The adventurism that we face are treacherous ,painstaking and comes
only through great risks,as we feel erstwhile.Not only are we stubborn to
kick our actions but we deem our own truths ,realities shaped by
experiences.We cling and thus unaware of what the real destination is,we
are confused.Oue initial charm ,motivation wilts away.It mean no sooner the
thing we attempted comes before us,we know the meaning as well as the vain
we tried .This makes us laugh how meanest and petty it was.And,the big
zero..the perishing away by death fears us,reminds of the fragile assetion
and spirit.Thus goes the life meaningless,whatever we 've, longings and
passions to move with.

People that does not seek deeper meaning within literature lacks the very
basic skill to even ask. Some people might think that others are reading
too much into the poem, well maybe they are, but at least they have the
ability to ask and convey a deeper meaning, instead of just take what the
poem have to offer literally. Poets, like Robert Frost, are considered to
be a famous because their work portrays themes and moral concepts which can
be applied to the world, not because of simple "apple-picking."

I thought that this poem was about the ending of life, and how Robert Frost
was using apples to symbolize his choices in life, and the unfilled barrels
symbolize his unfulfilled dreams. His line "I am overtired (of
apple-picking)" seems to say that the speaker is tired of life, and is
waiting for his death. The poem itself paints a very simple picture,
similar to Robert Frost's poems, it also suggests a deeper meaning than
what the words of his poem actually mean.
