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

I like the poems of Robert Frost very much。 But I do not quite
understand the last sentence of the poem。 Does it have any symbolic
meaning ? What does the author want to express through the
sentence?

you people are retarded. This poem is about accepting things that you can't
control such as the night turning to dark and anything else for that
matter. thanks for no help!
