I had to do this poem (sight unseen) in a poetry competition as a child
aged about 10.
It thrilled me then, and now is the first time I have found it again.

Yes - Like most young men, the colt runs away. Please note in line 15, he
returns with a clatter. Home has a powerful drag on all of us.

about a dog eating rather stale and slightly damp bread

I think when Robert Frost wrote this poem, he was painting a picture of how
young people get scare and never stop to think about their next move but to
runaway. They do this because they think their parents don't know.All in
all, when too much problems takes place the young ones runaway from them or
you can say their fears.

Robert Frost is such a great poet. at the end of this poem when he talks
about someone should have taken him (the runaway) in, i think hes trying to
say that everyone needs someone to take care of them, especially babies,
like the runaway colt. and hes afraid of the snow, i think, because hes
afraid of trying or facing new things. the unknown is scary. this is a
great poem and write a comment back about what you think this poem means

I absolutely love this poem. Frost is one of my all time favorites. I
remember reading this growing up and loving it. I can recite it completely
from memory. as for who he's talking about...kim...he is probably talking
about a runaway. Go figure!

I find the whole rhyme scheme very unusual. I also agree that th poem
stresses th eimportance of staying with your family while you are young. I
sure could'nt have made it without my family! Go Robert Frost!

I think that this poem is telling about our instincted to run away from
what we don't want to face/ or things that scare us. And maybe that running
is all you can do some times, you may not have time to stop and think that
it might not be that bad.
