I think this is very very good poem by Roebert Frost who was a great poet
in america.This poem is not hard to understand but it has a very deeper
meaning.He tried to let the common people understand how this minor point
become a very serious issue.he tried to convince very powerful and
meaningful idea in very simple and imaginal way.I also
like to the persantation.the persantation is very very nice.I this i love
to this poem very much because of the simplysity and powerful meaning.

this poem is not hard to understand but it has many layers of meanings
which is very philosophical. he tries to let the common people understand
how this minor issue become an annoyance to the modern men like us who are
busy with the newly modernized world and have no time to enjoy the nature
but finds it very annoying and wasteful. it is just the nature of the bird
to sing and the bird simply symbolizes the nature. the part which he cannot
bear the singing of the bird, shows the difference and how the men have
changed with the modern world and totally forgets the nature. it is not the
fault of the bird whyhe gets annoyed but it is his won fault.this poem
mainly says how we have failed to appreciate the nature.

C'mon, people

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.
