This poem definitly contains a great deal of sexual imagery..."could play
alone, took the stiffness out of them, hung limp, not launching out too
soon, fill a cup, up to the brim" youre kidding youreself if you think
Frost put all of these images together out of chance, it represence his
childhood innocence and fantasies.

birches...ah birches...even the mention of that tree gets me hot and
sweaty, 4 some guy on horse action. i also love the subverted flower. it
reminds me of the morning dawn. lol. ps. i would give my right arm 4 a sex
toy that was the same shape and rough texture of a birch LOG. who cares if
i bleed 2 death??

Im Writing a poetry paper on this poem and found that the main themes of
the poem were the joys of innocence and how the old painful memories of the
past will not break ou but will never fade completley from your memory

I quite enjoy Mr.Frost's poetry, this poem is another great example of
Mr.Frosts' talents. I fail to see any sexual context in it at all
though...contrary to many posts.

every time i read frost i get taken away, but never too far. In fact i am
inside the poem. Swinging from birch to birch. One could do worse!

The poem brought back many happy thoughts of enjoying nature , especially
the birch and its significance to canoeing, in the Canadian north . Nature
in Canada would not be as rich without the birch.

from reading this poem, i believe that frost finds everday life boring. he
would rather make up a story behind why things are the way they are than
know the true reason. frost wants more than what is common and usual. he
has the proper technique and the correct language to provide that for
himself and his readers.

My name is Eden and i have always had a secret fantasy of Robert Frost.
Not only does this poem turn me on, but i just cant get the image of MR
FROST out of my head. What a HOT-TAY

Great poem, I actually did not think it was about childhood and such, but I
thought it was about the ups and downs of life. Strongly recommend reading
this poem.
