enkxfy Internet is written with the capital letter in a sentence, by the
way. And hundredths are written not with a point but with a comma. This is
according to the standard. And actually everything is very good..!!

This is totally a vague poem. after reading his poem depression of his life
reflects. in the last few lines of poem it can be seen that how amazed
Frost is about his life happenings. But a hope for change is also reflected
from his poem.

Yes at first i did not understand is but then on further introspection i
began to understand that he meant for us to know that we are not here on
the heart for long.

I'm writing an IB paper 3 on this poem, and I believe it to be fairly
ambiguous with its theme. The in depth values and interpretations of this
poem are the theme of death in relation to modernism. If you study the poem
carefully you notice his structured technique's are quite loosely monitored
with a rhyming scheme of A,A,B;B,B,A;A,B,A,B;B,A,B,A spelling carefully the
terms used within each stanza. This proves Millay's acceptance of the
woman's role in modernism.

ithink its about industrilasation - states "highways dust is over all" its
from the bird perspective, and the diminshed thing could be polluted
countrysdie or just general - every1 else looks 2 far into it.

This poem, similar to "Nothing Gold Can Stay", reflects on mortality and
the fleeting quality of nature. Frost was preoccupied with the cycle of
nature and especially autumn and the ironic beauty of dying leaves,
signifying the onset of winter. He captures the impossibility of
perfection in this poem. This is reinforced by his reference to the Fall
of Adam and Eve in the last line - "a diminished thing".
