In this poem, Frost is talking about a small town surrounded by a mountain.
It seems that the speaker does not appreciate the town as much as he
should until he visits again. He missed so much - the stars, the fields, a
river, etc. He met a man on his journey. There is a wonderful scene
invented here. The mountain holds the town together. There is a fountain
atop the mountain, and the man tells the speaker that he has never been
there. Perhaps one who lives in a certain place all his life may take for
granted the advantages or qualities of his dwelling. And, one who goes to
a place they have never visited before wants to see everything and anything
worth visiting. How interesting!
