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.

The poem is an excellent symbolic representation of our mundane existence
which is made fruitful by spiritual aspirations.Frost makes the best use of
different techniques like simile, metaphor, onamatopoea, alliteration etc.
I firmly believe that the poem has no sexual connotations as some would
