fyi,I think the Iranian government has said svereal times in recent months that it wanted to encourage Iranians living abroad to return to Iran. But perhaps nothing has been done to foster this.

This poem (like many of Frost's poems) is about the differences between humans and nature. The plants and animals do not mourn the loss of the farmhouse, they continue to live, even making their homes in the reckage. The central idea is that, although many other poets talk of nature as being gentle and beautiful, we shouldn't sentimentalise it as it is, in fact, brutal and uncaring. The birds have not 'wept' after the destruction, they barely notice. This veiw of nature being savage present in other poems of Frost's.
