Sorry to comment on the lack of understanding on this excellent poem! This
is a poem that needs to be read and re read for the understnding, i woild
also like to mention that it is not a book BUT a POEM! Robert Frost i feel
was looking into past events and how different things come back from your

seeing something you dont wish to see hearing what you do not wish to hear.
Please please read and re read this poem to get the proper insight you
