What its really about...

It may seem hard to believe at first, but the song is actually about a girl
becoming pregnant.
In the beginning it describes her doing something childish when her father
gave her a "garden", which is a metaphor for independence.
"She wheeled the dung in the wheelbarrow" this can also be a metaphor as
her carrying her child that has disgraced her. "She hid from anyone
passing" it still is disgracing her...
"She says she thinks she planted one Of all things but weed." Another mean
word for her child, "weed". The baby is growing...
Go back to the "dung in the wheelbarrow" part and at the end it says she
left her "not nice load" therefore she gave her child away.
"And yes, she has long mistrusted That a cider-apple In bearing there today
is hers Or at least may be." --- "Now when she sees in the village How
village things go, Just when it seems to come in right, She says, "I know!"

So, as she sometimes goes to the village she most likely sees her child
growing up from a "weed" or "dung" to a "cider-apple tree". She finally
aknowledges that the child is hers and in the last part of the poem she
"never tells the tale to the same person twice"...it can still be a
disgrace to her.

Missing Word!

Did anyone notice the word "tree" is missing after cider apple... ? In
1964, my high school chorus won a blue ribbon for this lovely poem put to
music. I still enjoy singing it to myself on occasion. It's very lyrical
without the music. Frost must have been smiling when he wrote the words.
