I am not sure I agree that the couple are having trouble. I feel it is more
a surprise role reversal: The humans are afraid, there are many words
expressing unease here, and fear, yet the deer, normally the shy ones are
unafraid., words of security and safety are associated with them, they are
safe and unscared, whilst the humans are nervous of the approaching dark in
the woods; The couple are surprised to see the deer and ultimately feel
priviledged to have shared the moment whereas the deer are unconcerned,
aloof, anthropomorphically condescending towards the human couple; they are
of no consequence. The deer leave and the couple feel re-assured that the
woods/natural world is not a place to be afraid of.

this poem is about a man and woman, who are having difficulties in their
relationship. they are going through a rough patch, and the imagery of
climbing up a mountain, is really their journey through getting their
relationship back on track. the doe and the buck symbolises themselves.
robert frost continually uses comparisons of nature, to show a human
situation being resolved in nature. there are many comparisons in the poem,
for example mending wall, talking about two couples across the wall, just
like the neighbours mending the wall, each on a different side of the wall.
the poem is very difficult to understand, although breaking it down, and
using the title, help us to understand it. the title is of great
significance in this poem.
