I think that many people have read too far into these poems as there are
many sexual references that many people wouldn't think of. The only
relationship that i can seein this poem is the realtionship between the two
tramps and the writer and also the relationship between the worker andhis
love of work.

I am studying most of Robert frost's poems and being honest, im not
enjoying it one single bit. I think they are boring and some just go into
too much detail and they drift of the subject which he began with. The
poems are very cleverly written but don't appeal to me at all.

I'm studying this poem for AS level and I feel that it's only talking about
two tramps coming and wanting to chop wood. It's boring and I think that
Robert Frost wasn't trying to make it sund different. I've heard that it
refers to sex but we could say that about every poem ever written!!

i am currently studing this poem for Alevel and i love it!especially the
4th stanza where he uses paradoxial ideas to contrst the blue bird only as
being the colour blue, not the feeling blue!!i think this relation can be
given to everyday situations where different ideas can have multiple
meanings and its up to us to decipher between them!! love SaN x

i think frost is such an amazing and inspiring poet the way he relates his
work to the seasons and experiences that have happened him concoct together
such fantastic poems.i especially think two tramps in mud time is one of
his bests due to his use of empathy and enjambement;out,out- is another of
his great works

I do like Robert Frost' poetry after studying his work for A/S English. But
I find 'Two Tramps in Mud Time'pretty boring. This poem does not interest
me at all!

I love this poem! For me, it resonates with the wisdom of lived experience
and the joy of living from one's centre. It clearly expresses the
difference between regarding work as a means to an end and the vibrancy of
seeing it as "play for mortal stakes". I love the way Frost moves from an
apparently trivial event to profounder insight. What a joy! :-)

im having to do this poem as part of english A level, i cant stand this
poem by robert frost, however i do believe that he is an amazing poet, only
because i am becoming dis heartened with the lack of help on the net, i am
starting to dislike his work all together.
