What I really think the poem is about is that this couple loves each other
very much but the treacherous path has weakened their love. If they work
out their problems or go over this wall with barbed wire and what have you
then they will continue on if not then they stay with the dear. I think
this shows the human capacity to love...

I simply think the poem is talkn about two people on a hike who suddenly
come across a wall with a barbed wire to their disappointment but are also
weary of going back as its fast gettn dark and the way back look difficult
and dangerous! Suddenly comes a doe opposite d fence who regards them
unsure of their purpose but unscared goes on its way. Next is the buck who
was a little less patient than d doe, but who also unscared walks away. The
couple suddenly feels a sense of ones with nature at that precise time.

Jerry is right. This poem is not about a human relationship in turmoil as
others have commented.

In this poem, the couple is in love--very deeply in love. They travel up
the mountain even though it is getting dark because they want to be
together, and not turn back. When they come upon the wall, they know that
they cannot go further, but they want to. They stand there and contemplate
going further. But before they turn back, they come face to face with two
deer--who are also at the wall, and can go no further. When they see the
deer, it is like they are looking in a mirror. They see themselves in the
deer--they too are a couple walking through the woods, yet the wall keeps
them (humans and nature) from truly becoming one. They display mutual
respect for each other, and at this time, the humans feel a deep connection
with nature. They see it as a rare moment to reinforce their unity with
the earth, and to reinforce their love. They would never have seen this
had they not been so in love, and had turned back early. Beautiful poem!

The poem suggests an encounter between humans and nature, which while
separated by a wall centuries of
anegative relationships, that is balanced,beneficial,
harmonious,a right relationship based not on fear or
dominance,but respect, degree of intimacy and understanding. A much more
positive view of the human/natural world than Woodpile, Stopping the
The Most of It, etc. Earth, indeed, has "returned their love." They have
taken the right path, not the well-worn way they must not go, unsafe in
A quiet, yet dynamic poem with wonderful progression.
Moving without becoming sentimental, simple without becoming simplistic.
The wonderful spell is never broken!

I agree that it is about relationship difficulties and the 'way they must
not go' is the option of giving up on their relationship; the 'failing

Well this poem could be interpreted in many ways. This could also be
interperted as two hikers going up a mountain. Then they meet two deers
that are being separted by a wall symbolizing that humans really destruct
mothe rnature, remeber that Frost was against humans because he beileved
that it was all humans fault that bad things happen to helpless animals.
