Spring Pools

Youth is the spring of your life. You are beautiful, full of life and joy.
But that is also the time when you make the important decision in your
life. But regardless which choices you made, your time is still limited,
you will have to fade away, to give room for the next generation. And by
then you realize how small you always were, even at the height of your

In my opinion this poem has many meaninsn it can be interpreted in many
different ways. What I get from it is that every decision you make
describes you whether right or wrong the wrong ones will fade away but soon
enough there will be someone that brings your mistakes up. But they should
not either because they too have made mistakes.

I think that Allison's and Ray's perspective of the poem most accurately
capture the two main meaning of the poem: on a simple level and on a deep

i think that robert frost is not warning trees to stop
absorbing water because he does not possess the ability to prevent such a
natural phenomena. He is advicing trees to stop this act for the safety of
the exictance

The poem "Spring Pools" is an expression of Robert Frost's feelings
towards the quickly passing season of spring, in particular the pools that
form from the melted snow. Frost uses the pools and flowers as indicators
of spring, but then mentions that they will soon "chill and shiver". This
gives the reader the idea that fall is rapidly approaching, and that the
flowers and pools will "soon be gone". The lines “still reflect the total
sky almost without defect” suggest that the pools were created as a kind of
reflection from heaven. This ties into the lines “let them think twice
before they use their powers to blot out and drink up and sweep away” were
Robert Frost is ‘warning’ the trees to “think twice” before they absorb all
the water. If the trees absorb the pools, this will be a sign that summer,
then fall and winter will be coming steadily. Since the season of spring is
when the pools form, the trees absorbing the water is the same as them
disobeying Frost’s warnings to “think again” which has a deeper meaning of
betraying God and committing a sin. At a first glance, the reader of this
poem may not be able to interpret the inner importance of it. With the
poetic devices used by Frost such as personification (giving the trees
human characteristics), repetition ( in the lines "These flowery waters and
these watery flowers") and the use of similes (in the lines "And like the
flowers beside them, chill and shiver…"), it is much easier for the reader
to understand, appreciate and associate it with other meanings.
