You know, if you replace the letter "R" in the word birches with a letter
"T", the poem becomes a lot funnier.

to have the free spirit of youth and innocence be inmortalized in this way
is tribute to mr frost's talent and insight. great poem one of my
favorites

If one thinks that this poem stinks like poo - it would be my thought that
one has not had the pleasure at a younger age of swinging from birches and
the memory of the freedom feeling. Oh how wonderful the feeling was and
how great the memory. I love the poem.

this is one of my favorite poems by Frost. at my high school, we were
taught the analysis of the innocent boy, swinging on birch trees. our
teacher told us that Frost admired youth and innocence, but later, my
friend and i analyzed it in a different way, and found that this poem is
also very sexual. see if you can interpret this poem that we did. our
teacher was very surprised that we could find such an analysis at our age,
have fun!

This and "Stopping By Woods" were my favorites in High School. Never knew
why, but now that I'm well past 60 I see things I missed when I was
younger. I see how old scars and pain can be seen in people long after the
events that caused them. In Frost's words..though they never break, they
never right themselves. Wonderful poem...wonderful man.

This poem was a favorite of my English Prof. at Dickinson College. He read
it to us, and told us he also was a swinger of birches. I've always loved
it. I looked it up to send to a friend in Canada who has a retirement home
near Lake Winnipeg, and surrounded, by Birches!
