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.

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.

it is prosaic in langage but deep and inwardly poetic. both the tree and
man alive in this poem (physical) the observer 'I' is frost hiself who
likes to investigate the problem of human life. the life time is emphasized
here with the starting word 'WHEN' in capital where we have to meet with
lots of colorful hurdles through which we gain experience and mold

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
