haha. i love that first comment.
i am writing a five page response to this poem,and im just b.s.ing my way
through it.
this poem sucks

it has a message: the message is to honor i tin your own soul and feel the
despair he felt.

it is not ment to be put into any other words than those that frost used.

if you can't understand his message ur on crack i swear.

and i hate all english teachers that think that explicating a poem helps us
understand it, when the author intended their writing to be enjoyed and
interperated according to the listener, and enjyed.
not picked apart.

screw english courses.

This poem has twenty verses and 4 stanzas. It rhymes which are a: fast,
past, and last, c: theirs, lairs, and unawares, e: loneliness, less, and
express, and f: spaces and places. He also use alliteration such as "Snow
falling and night falling fast, oh, fast:. His tone towards this poem is
sadness, loneliness, and quiet.

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.
