I don't think it has any sexual meaning! This poem is simply about how
childhood used to be. When we grow up life is harsh but when your a child
you don't worry about what tomorrow might bring you are worry free. And he
just talks about being a child again.

this poem is one of the great poems since it makes us live with the
feelings of the poet since he portrait the birches trees and his wish to go
back and live the happy moments in climding the trees .so wow!if anyone
know how to understand it he will be pleased

this poem gets my juices flowing... to the max! I can't wait to go home to
my hubby and read this to him while fondling his anus... he's gonna love
this... and our gay son can read it and smother his body in vaseline when
he comes home from school.

This poem made me feel so hot and wet between my legs. I can just imagine
riding the birches with Robert Frost. I thought about it for the rest of
the day and I couldn't wait to get home to my vaseline. I read it to my
boyfriend naked and we reinacted the poem but it wasn't his birch that was

GReat interpretation! the poem shows the life as the birch tree, which
explains the effects from many problem. Mr.Frost simulated these effects
into nature. What a great poem!

This poem has such beautiful imagery: it nicely constrasts winter and
summer, youth and aging, harshness and innocence - i love it

I am researching Robert Frost for school and i came across this poem. Once
you take the time to read it, its a very sweet poem.

I just read this poem for the first time this morning and I have thought of
it all day. Wondeful imagery of the ice storm and then he drifts off from
that reality to a dream of swinging on birches as a boy, and of the trees
ending to him. I wish I could swing with such abandon up to the heavens and
then return to the ground, over and over, each time a fresh start. I love
this poem.
