Robert Frost describes how a rose is so complex, which makes it beautiful.
People often say simple is beautiful as well and like by others, for
example apples(round), pear(curve). A Rose(unique). Well I say this poem
describes our music nowadays because it is not about lyrics any more its
about a hot beat and a catchy hook(simple). The music before(complex) more
lyrical and artist had more perception of music and knew how to wax their

The Rose Family

I believe that Robert Frost was adressing the concept of love and being
loved but also adressing value.Roses are beautiful to look at but they can
signify many other thoughts and/or emotions (friendship, hope,
faith,happiness,jealousy...etc.)and all the pear, plum, and apple have to
offer is substance and that's all they would be able to offer-substance. He
seems to covet the rose (thoughts, feelings, emotions...)more than the
pear, apple, or plum (substance)and goes on to say that some are starting
to choose substance over true 'substance'-intelligence. And finishes off by
saying that (to whom ever he was 'talking' to)has REAL substance and teh
one he feels for.

To me this poem is saying, yes, yes, you're all beautiful, you're all
equal, as that is the politically correct thing to say and think, but the
truth is that a rose is somehow the superior being in the flower kingdom
and some people are "royal" - and yes, that thought may be being delivered
ironically or sarcastically; but it also could be coddling someone whom he
wants to reassure, like a jealous lover. I think it, again, may relate to
the theme of poetry itself and Frost watching how anything goes and it's
all so legit as poetry, but is it and did he really believe that? I doubt
