I think that the last line where is says, i think they would belive the
lie, is talking about the line before it which states that men have stopped
dieing and will live forever.

O my gosh Jeffrey! This is a site for commenting on poetry!! not
critizizing foreign people who are trying their best in our languagee!
suman i think i need your grammar lessons since no matter english is my
first language i dont know how to write in it! i just never learned at
school!i suck i know..
now..about the poem..i think he is talking about him feeling lonely. its a
big metaphore. he believes he is dead in spirit, since he is depresed, and
thinks everyone else are the living. he believes nomeone wahnts to visit
him anymore, and that is why he is like burried on an unused graveyard

It was wonderful to read your insightful interpretation of Robert Frost's
lines. Given that English is obviously a second or perhaps, a third
language for you I think you've done a wonderful job of getting at least
some of your punctuation and grammar right. Far be it for me to nitpick,
given your commendable efforts at expressing yourself in a foreign language
such as English - please allow me to offer a word or two of advice to you.
Vowels, except on a few rare occasions are always preceded by an 'an'. As I
have demonstrated in the last sentence.
Also when using the plural form of a word that ends in an 's', one uses an
apostrophe at the end without adding an 's'.
Hope that some of this information comes of use to you in your heroic
effort to master the language.

So, I didn't actually come to this webpage with the intention of writing
anything, but I figure, there's always a first! So, my overall oppinion of
this poem is that it is talking about death and stating that someday we all
will die, but I think it speaks more about how we all take for granted the
fact that we will die and choose not to think about it. If you look at the
first stanza, Frost says that only the living still come to the grave yard
(duh!) because the dead are already there and hence don't need to GO to the
graveyard. The second stanza states that all of the gravestones have some
saying that basically says "whoever reads this will someday join me." But,
if you think about it, that is exactly what the headstones say...Here
lies________ she/he.....and may she rest in peace. Or there are the
headstones that say loving wife of....they will forever be joined in Heaven
or something like that. Then in the third stanza he actually addresses the
main point of the poem. What is it men are shrinking from? DEATH!!! But,
what I fail to understand is the very last line-wth? I think they would
believe the lie????

I haven't really thought about the TRUE meaning of the poem, but the first
impression it left on me was that men really are attracted to death and
sometimes DO wish to die. Knowing Frost as a depressing, mellow poet, it's
not a big surprise. The way the living alway come to revisit the graves
also support the idea that men are attracted to death.
Jeffrey: People are entitled to their opinions. And a person's
country/nationality has absolutely nothing to do with their
interpretations. -_-; People like you shame the name of all us Americans.

Jeffrey: Grow up. Be kind. After all, you're comments were not what I would
call insightful. I guess redneck American idiots must read poetry too,(on

First of all...learn how to spell poem right, and of course someone is not
going to like to die. Get a freaking life you moron! This poem is good
cause it takes a in depth look at what humans biggest fear is...death. It
makes you really step back and look at how Frost presents this concept
also. Anyways, good poem overall, and Marla Micciche is not a very bright
person...thats ok cause you are obviously not AMERICAN!
