there is sooo much to this poem, the structure and meanings, you can read
on forever but never finish interpreting it. i love the way it's been put
together, the abab rhyming format and (as sam said) the 4-4-4-5 syllable
showing change in mood. i think Frost is telling us that the tiniest things
can make all the difference, this attitude helped Frost out of his own
depression after experiencing death in his family. Robert Frost Rules!

I am currently studying this poem in college and i am finding it difficult
to apprehend your interpretation of this poem. I must say i agree with
Kyle, as how exactly have you perceived the rhyming scheme as four seasons?
Because the poem clearly talks about one season, that beng winter. I also
like to point that ABAB as the crows footsteps may possibly be reaching a
little too far into the meaning.

the poem apprears to be light-hearted but after analyzing it, it is obvious
that the poem has a deeper meaning. the poem shows that if something
should happen to you, you should be happy that something worse did not
happen. The crow sybolizes death while the snow symbolizes good fortune or
luck. The hemlock tree could symbolize someone or something looking out
for the speaker like a friend or God. The last four lines ofthe poem show
how grateful the speaker is to still be alive and to have someone looking
out for him. The poem shows nature in a different light.

This peom showed a good example of mood and I thought that using french for
the very last word was excelent.
