I think this poem talks about the mystery of creation that eludes us all of
understanding. Yet because we constantly seek to understand creation or in
more simpler terms, God we constantly look for knowing in everything we can
understand and know. At best, what we conclude what it might be it is not.
The Great mystery is great because it is and will remain a mystery. If we
knew what we saw when we passed it by it would become plain and banal

I think his poem talks about how the first impression of something that's
attractive is usually over-glorified and inaccurate, but if we leave our
impression as-is, then we can be left with that sense of beauty. However,
once we look deep enough, we can soon notice the flaws and forget the
beauty which we once saw was. So question is, should we enjoy things the
way they are? Or should we go back to critique, only to be disappointed
because nothing is perfect?

I think this poe is talking about how Robert Frost wants to go back in time
and see how his children and his wife were befor they died.I think in his
last phrase of the poem he is saying that people doin't appresate thier
loved ones untill they are gone. and we only get glipses of what they were
like becasue it would be to paiful to get anything more.
