this poem is amazing. The author is showing some lonliness and depression
when writing this one.

The poem makes me think of memories and maybe regret. Also experiences, or
maybe even wanting something or wanting to be at a specific point in your
life. being accustomed to lonliness and loss, but able to overcome it. Time
is a powerful thing but you keep going.

This poem i think is about all the hard times that robert frost has been
through in his life. For example he had lost 4 out of 6 children and he had
many illnesses during his lifetime... one i think is cancer, and his
worsening eyesight.

My interpretation: This poem is a terza rima about how it feels to be
homeless, the abandonment and loneliness that accompanies such a fate.

Hi, im doing an assignment and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what
the "luminary clock" really means. I know that it is talking about the moon
but what is it saying about the moon? Is it saying that he is looking to
the moon as his means of telling time? OR IS THE MOON THE "CLOCK" IN HIS

I love this poem - I'm doing an analysis on it for school, and it has so
many meanings! I think it is a great poem, and Frost wrote it so that it
purposely had many different meanings, having a unique meaning to each
person - everyone can relate to it in a different way.
