Maybe Frost isn't refering to any specific phenomenon but is just commenting on the nature of true love in all of its forms, that although the things we love aren't always the way we want them to be, if we truly love them we can accept and love who they are in all of their forms. The brook undergoes many unattractive forms like when it dries up, yet it is still loved nonetheless.

I am studying Robert Frost Poetry for a level and so far i have really enjoyed it. He shows deep meanings throught his poems which has a real affect on the reader.
I think hyla brook represents the change in his life, which is shown through the changing seasons.

There are brooks. There are raging rivers. Some are life out loud. Some are quiet. Some demand attention. Some command attention and deeper thought. Robert Frost has always spoken to my heart!
