in this poem the author uses 'desert' as a metaphor for lonliness. he
trying to say that in his world he has nobody to share it with. he is
comparing his life to a desert.

I cannot take anything away from 'a-bomb'. But starting from zero, I will
say this...

Frost is expressing the thought that although the depths of winter are
bleak, bleaker still are the depths of loneliness and isolation within the
human heart.

The poem has wonderful meaning, as I was smoking marijuana i began to feel
the real meaning of the poem, I'm such a pothead. OH yeah, i got my dog
high this afternoon. well anyways, the poem is so sad, as sad as robert
frosty. Well, I have to go smoke some more weed and hopefully get laid, if
not i'll just slap the monkey.

I believe he’s expressing everyone’s loneliness or dark side of their mind.
It may be tucked away, and covered up, but it is still there.< And the
ground almost covered smooth in snow,/But a few weeds and stubble showing
last. > And he is trying not to notice it as much as possible. But no
matter how hard he tries it will only get worse< Will be more lonely ere it
will be less > and nobody can tell because he hides it from everyone. And
he is scared of it. with my own desert places. > He refers to it as desert places because it is
dry and barren of any emotion, such as a desert is to water and life.

I don't know, just a thought I guess...

(Ps Robert Frost is Amazing. One of my personal favorites) =)

I think the poem highlights the theme of loneliness and isolation that
strikes the persona.

Yes, we all have our desert places, but are "They," who try to "scare" us?
