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.

The poem clearly depicts an old man's empty life in the countryside. Being
old, he feels wasted. Frost's use of imagery allures readers to imagine how
weary and boring an old man's life is. The sound devices are effective!
"The roar of trees, crack of branches and beating on the box," fully
illustrate some of Frost's creative and vivid images. This poem highlights
Frost's sensitivity to nature.
