at first, i dont understand this poem.. but after many times of reading
this, i got to understand that each of us whether young or old has fears.it
may be simple or complicated, but sure there,s a way for us to overcome
them.. and when one finds it difficult to understand, either we run away or
we choose to face it.. and what happens is that many choose to runaway not
knowing it would only make the situation worse. so in this cases, we need
someone who can guide us, someone who can motivate us, and someone to
remind us that life isnt always a happy ride. and whatever happens, running
away is not a good choice, so we must be able to correct ourselves and
follow the right path,.. just like the colt who chose to come back...

This is a rather bad poem in my opinion, but, I needed to get similar
reviews online for a school assignment, other than that, this poem is not
worth as single second of your time.

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.

i think robert frost is not cool enough to wear mittens..and this poem is
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.
