The allusion to Herrick is from his poem "To the Virgins, to make much of
Time" Basically, I believe the whole poem is a reference to sex and what
have you. The girl recognizes she will not always be able to pick roses. A
sort of carpe diem mentality. Asking for roses is an obvious euphemish of
asking for sex. etc etc. I'm also writing a paper on this :/

I think that the house represents the unknown and frightning things in lie
and if you want to get good things out of life (roses) you have to go up
and knock on the frightning things doors or else the good things will fall
unpicked and you won't have the oppertunity to experience them

I think it is an interesting poem. The part where they turn to the house,
and knock to the echos is really a great image.

Deeper meaning? I think the line about rose unpicked implys that frost is
trying to say something. It could be talents kind of thing. We all have a
gift, use it.

I think this poem has a deeper meaning in it.
Maybe the roses represent opportunities and you should take these
opportunities and do your best with them.

Or the house could be friends and family and if you need help you should
ask them for it.

Just my ideas though. Thanks!:D
