I took notice that the old man is in fact lonely, but that seemed to literal to be the meaning in one of Frost's poems. With a little analyzation I discovered that Frost could possibly be comparing the relationship in the "ying yang"; the remnants of evil in good having a small portion within one another. This is justified through the old man's light and his consignment with the moon on a winters night. The old man can only keep his house on a winter's night because he can't create darkness on a regular (sunny) day- he also has no planet to consign with durring the day except the sun (which isn't dark).. thus he can only complete one half of the ying-yang.
It is a sad and haunting poem, an old man living his last days ..alone. The poem may be understood better if you have ever lived in an old wood frame house in the country. The sounds of winter; expansion and contraction of materials, inside an outside create a powerful atmosphere that both repels and attracts you at the same time. The reader is frighten, you want to escape this house and it's lonely occupant. The imagery invoked by the language is brilliant. I'm at a loss to imagine how poeple write like this. Poetry to me is the high ground of literature! If anyone knows where I can purchase this poem in "spoken word" by Robert Frost, please contact me.
