I'm not a poet nor an english student but I have a great respect for
poetry. After reading this poem I have come to a different understanding of
it's meaning but please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The poem
seems to deal with the positives found in negatives. Much like the wisdom
gained from disciplin, I love it's possitive out look and am greatful to
find others who agree. Thank you

Sam -
that was by far the worst assesment i have ever read. i am aware that you
were only trying to help but it would have been more help if you would have
just shut your ignorant mouth. First of all tere is know way of assuming
that the 4 lines represent the seasons for there is no corralation. Also,
you stated that we can identify with this character which is ironic because
this poem really represents optimism, which is by far what people never
reach in their lives. This may be your favorite poem, however, you dont
understand it at all.

some of the comments made are particularly helpful for my a level
assesment on robert frost. i have a number of comments i wish to share on
the poem to help people like me who are studing it.the abab rhyme scheme
sounds very like the pattering of the crows feet on the tree. the 4 lines
rep the 4 seasons. thge 4-4-4-5 syllables reps the change of mood. the
black crow reps misfortune and the white snow reps good. i think this poem
is quite catchy as even me as a v literal person am getting into it and
know it almost off by heart. my fav frost poem so far is the most of it
because the man is someone we can all identify with at some stage in our
lives.

Everyone is sayin stanza 2 is positive but if you read it carfully there is
nothing there to suggest that. The poem has been cleverly writter so it can
be taken either way.

dont forget about the contrast in the possitive and the negative, 1st
stanza being negative and 2nd being possitive

To be honest, i don't real;y like this poem of Frost's. It's plan and
boring, he has written so much more better work for example The road not
taken. It's more deeper than this poem.
