This poem isn't too hard to understand. It's about freedom of expression
and appreciation of the arts.
There's this bird that's been singing all day and it's getting on his
nerves. He eventually snaps and tries to put an end to the bird's dreadful
singing. It's only then that he realizes what he's done. He's put himself
before the bird's self-expression and happiness.
A bird (or any artist) may not be good at what s/he does, but everyone has
a right to self-expression, and as caring human beings, we should show a
person appreciation at least for the effort that s/he puts into his/her
That's my take. You don't have to agree, but let's at least agree that
it's a very beautiful poem.

This poem is one of the greatest pieces of poetry with which the works of
Robert Frost are always associated. Though it is not that much easy to
discern the meaning out of this, one can do so if he or she ponder on it.
One must read it over and over again to understand the philosophy of the
poet that is exactly what eludes us from coming to a satisfactory analysis
of this poem which can be accepted by many a readers.
you may have you own idea of this poem. It has to be. One may see it from
different point of views. Whatever you may have, you have to prove your
comment, that is what is expected in analyzing poetry.
Now let me explain how i can perceive the speaker's attitude found in this
poem. It's something like he, the speaker is so miserable that he can not
see the world any more as he used to be. It may be because he has been
depressed and have no hope. He does not seem to be feeling like home.
Feelings such as love might make us feel blue that makes us see the world
not the same as before.
The things found in nature that we normally enjoy seeing, hearing & etc. no
longer be so attractive, now you start to hate them that may be because
they remind you of the past happenings which you are trying to erase from
your mind as soon as posible. You do not like company and you want to be
alone, that's why you clap your hand at the bird to chase away it. You are
mentally not in a position to appreciate the beauty of nature, even though
it is not the fault of nature. You know well, a part of the fault of your
behaviour can be attributed to your depression. Then, the rest of the fault
must go to whom? Should the blame be placed on nature? No it should go the
society in which we live or to your self for not being able to deal with
This reminds me the words of Shakespear " Dear Brutes the fault is not in
our stars but in our selves"
We all are part of nature and inseparable. Animate & inanimate things are
closely bound together, we have interact with each other. After all we can
not always be happy. Sad & happy moments come in our way. That is what the
life is all about. I personally believe the philosophy found in this poem
is that truth.

Frost's A Minor Bird
I just read this poem in a book on birds. To me, it has meaning that
relates to the hopes and dreams we have in our lives and how one must not
disparage but respect them. Also, I like the poem just cause its cute and
