yes, agree. My personal take is that this does not have to do with Frost's own death- but instead about accepting things outside of our control (in general) and specifically, about his own need to come to terms with acceptance at a painful rate given the many times he faced the death of loved ones in his lifetime (mom, sister, wife, children).

Hey, all intelligent Chris - Frost died in 1963. Poem was written in '28. End of career- notsomuch.
Anyways, great poem, etc etc
"Let the night be too dark for me to see" - Darkness is coming, the most popular interpretation is death.
Let what will be, be - You can't change what's going to happen (night will fall, people will die, etc), so let it be. THUS the name of the poem, acceptance, the speaker is accepting their fate
