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.

many people think that this poem is talking about a child beingafraid. i
think that it is how your fear is everywhere and that you can't get away
from it, and that the things you fear aren't nessesary the same things
other people fear.

i agree with the person above me that he was trying to show the importance
of staying with your family when your still young.

The reason why I think Robert Frost wrote this poem to tell kids to feel
strong and don t runaway from your problems and face them even though they
are scary problems or troubles ever since I read this poem it changed the
way i face my fears and my problems or I should of say my troubles that is
why i think Robert Frost wrote the poem "The Runaway".
