come in by robert frost
no Frost would not come in where "verdurous gloom" loom in Keatsean romance
with nightingale.Rather he was out for stars because it is always better to
light a candle, ,however dim the intensity has,than to curse the darkness.
Again Frost always experiences a momentary stay against confusion for which
he prefers to stay at the entrance of the woods.He never enters however
lovely dark and deep it would become.It is the clear declaration to face
reality than to lamant for lost glory.So hope breathes even in dying milieu
but by individual potency.

I didn't interpret this poem as a message about freedom; rather, the woods
and the darkness are negativity, pessimism, immorality, and other vices.
The thrush's music is the tempting call of these actions to abandon
discipline and come in to the dark, but the narrator makes a strong
decision about his purpose: he's out for the bright, happy parts of life,
and wouldn't succumb to the darkness even if he were explicitly asked. The
last line implies that this was all a mental battle--that is, he was not
refusing some profance solicitation; he was making a decision about his own

This poem was so deep and thoughtful. Robert Frost did a fantastic job
portraying his thoughts into a well-known poem. However it's hard to
understand some parts not having a great imagination when it comes to
poetry. Thank you to "THE GREAT ROBERT FROST"

the poem seems 2 b influencd by the sorrows that frost faced after the
death of his wife, daughter an son...
the dark woods represent his sorrow while the bird represents his
freedom...unsurprisingly the poem is set around nature...despite his
sadness, the poem seems quite optemistic.

This poem is evidently about freedom. The persona wants to be free from
sadness and grief, therefore choosing a thrush, which is a bird. Birds are
the most free animals, that can soar and venture. At the same time, they
are also very fragile, which is the persona's state. The persona at first
feels hopeless, but soon sees a slight chance of hope,"Though it could
still sing," "still lived for one song more." The spots of hope through
darkness are represented on the thrush's chest, because a thrush is dark
brown and has white spots. Those spots are the rays of hope through the
darkness.The bird calls the persoan to lament,"Far in the pillared dark...
to the dark and lament." He eventually chooses the light, and refuses to go
back into the darkness.
This poem is soo deep. The imagery is wonderful!

In all Frost's poems, it seems to me that it always has a lot to do with
strolls through nature. I find it beautiful and engaging. It jogs the mind
to paint an exquisite picture. This is an awesome poem!!!
