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

I am reading this poem tomorrow for a friend. She's in the hospital dying
of cancer and a co-worker is making a tape for her. I felt it appropriate
for someone who by her grace and selflessness has made many friends & given
many gifts. I hope she understands all the gifts that she's given up &
that we'll still reap when she's gone.

Heh, I just rearranged some of the lines from a few of Robert Frost's poem
and came up with this...

Winter Song

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
One towards a house that lacks, seemingly, mistress and master,
The other in leaves no step has trodden black.

Through the thin frost, almost in separate stars,
I went down the hill along the path
To the right,
Towards the house.

I halted in the wind, and--what was that
Far in the maples, pale, but not a ghost?
Admittedly, it was an eloquence so soft, like
A flower unplucked, left to the falling.

I had to stop and lift my face,
And see the bird with an angelic gift,
Crying as the gauntlet of winter clasped firm about the leaves
No step has trodden black.


Jake
