i liked this poem the most because it is about life and even though we
build ourselves to be strong we can fall like the tree in the poem. some
obsticles arn't easy to over come but it can be done. the poem showed me
that every thing has a weakness. you can get through any thing even if you
arn't prepared for it to happen.

I love the third stanza where it basically says we all have it in us to
overcome things, but it may be hidden. That is our struggle in life, to dig
deep inside ourselves and to find our stregnth.

Aimless circles in one place, earth by the poles. The earth spins on the
same axis over and over around the same sun over and over. At first we
were talking about a hike in the woods and now it's outer space—a remark of

the second line in this sonnet is missing a syllable and a word. "Throws
down in front of us is not bar
Is it simply an "a" before the "bar"?

i truly find robert frost's poems to be amazingly brilliant. just reading
them opens up a whole new side of poetry to me. i want to become a
journalist and im in highschool at the moment. i truly love poetry and
would love to become a professional someday. this poem.. is miracalous. i
agree with all your comments except the boy with the beef.. get out of here
this is a poetry discussion. i believe god has obstacles that he wants us
to overcome and that people don't realize the beauty of nature that is
around us, which is the reason mother nature has to do things such as have
the tree fall across the road.

I agree with most everyone's understanding of this poem, but I think the
conclusion in everyone's understanding is not present. It isn't that we
walk around angry at mother nature's ability to impede us in our
achievements. It is that we attempt to hold control over the Earth (thus
seize earth by the pole), yet, in the end, become part of nature, as we
stare into the night sky, perhaps even sitting on the very tree, that
impedes us from OUR agenda. We cannot subdue the earth because we are a
part of the earth.

This poem made me think about life and getting around obsticles. I hadn't
really thought about it before. I think it means that life is a test, and
that God gives us obsticles that we can get around. The tree falls across
the path, stopping the people walking along it. They don't have an axe to
cut their way through, yet they won't be put off. There is no obsticle in
life that we can't get over or get passed.
