Runaway , The Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Lee Frost Type: Poetry Views: 767



Once when the snow of the year was beginning to fall,
We stopped by a mountain pasture to say, “Whose colt?”
A little Morgan had one forefoot on the wall,
The other curled at his breast. He dipped his head
And snorted to us. And then we saw him bolt.
We heard the miniature thunder where he fled,
And we saw him, or thought we saw him, dim and gray,
Like a shadow across instead of behind the flakes.
The little fellow’s afraid of the falling snow.
He never saw it before. It isn’t play
With the little fellow at all. He’s running away.
He wouldn’t believe when his mother told him, ‘Sakes,
It’s only weather.’ He thought she didn’t know!
So this is something he has to bear alone
And now he comes again with a clatter of stone,
He mounts the wall again with whited eyes
Dilated nostrils, and tail held straight up straight.
He shudders his coat as if to throw off flies.
“Whoever it is that leaves him out so late,
When all other creatures have gone to stall and bin,
Ought to be told to come and take him in.”

Actually that was a great question of mine,like what exactly does the colt represent? Our teacher told us that there are three words that help us know it is a PERSON: fellow-tell-coat.The colt represents a child,a lost child,and the child represents a person that wants his FREEDOM.Like the colt that broke-free and left his pasture late at night,a person wants his/her freedom.But,once the colt got his freedom,he\'s afraid, and, like any lost and free child, wants his mom.The speakers of the poem then wonder that \"whomever left him out at night should take him back to his bin\"
It is actually a GREAT poem and the poet is a great one,juts when you know the meaning of the poem clearly!
I hope that helped!

For my own understanding and the help of others comment too,.. the colt is reflected to a child who run away from home because he couldn\'t believe what her mother told him and he is so affected with it that\'s why he run away, and when there is someone see\'s him, he ask for help and that person don\'t ignore him \'cause i think that person has a kind heart

I think this poem is about a colt who has ran away from home, and like all who runaway, he is scared and alone. He doesn\'t like feeling like this, but doesn\'t necessarily want to go back to his old life, for that is the reason he left in the first place. I think the poem strives to tell you to care for kids, because there are so many out there that cant get help, but they really truly need it.

this poem represent what truly happens in children. the colt represents as a kid. some kid needs care and afraid or scared when lost. and the colt like kids need protection and care from their parents.

I think the poem ,,. or the colt was runaway without telling everyone.,.,and it needs help.,.
so the moral lesson there is you have to help.,.,those person\'s, animal\'s who needs help.,.,if you have a good attitudes.,.,

The title of the poem indicates the horse was not just abandoned, but rather got loose. The wall is mentioned twice in the poem: the colt may belong to someone on the other side of the wall. It appears that the colt is at first about half-way over the wall, but later it\'s on (\"mounted\") top of the (probably low) wall. It may be confused. Maybe the colt isn\'t that anxious to get back to its home. However, the travelers can\'t just take the horse home with them even if the actual owners were negligent in letting it out: it isn\'t their property! The \"mother\" of the colt may be the true mare mom that the narrator imagines, or conceivably, the woman who owns the colt.

I believe this poem depicts a troubled young cult. this can also symbolize a young man or even child. And growing up may be hard for a child with too much freedom. This happens to the cult. And while the cult is scared of the snow, no one seems to care.

um so i thought it was about a horste that ranaway, hence the name. its owners didn\'t really care they just left him out there in the cold while all the other animals weren\'t around, this kinda tells us its at night. maybe this horse hasn\'t been trained properly that explains his running away

im renz etrata
this poem is very meaningful because as you read this the colt begun to runaway buy not listening to maybe his mother. as you read the last line (“Whoever it is that leaves him out so late,
When all other creatures have gone to stall and bin,
Ought to be told to come and take him in.”) this explaines that we need to "adopt" a person who needs help or have a tragic situations like runaway even we dont know them

The poem is saying that the colt/young horse is running away, it is lost and scared. The theme is YOUNGTH, NEGLECT, FREEDOM, and HOME AWAY HOME. The colt is still a kid... it is still young. It symbolized human kids. The colt is neglected by the authur and everyone. In the poem you see that he cares. But he didn't do anything though. No one taking action. Also, one other theme is that freedom is not always the best thing. The colt brought him more danger and troublkes to face. He is stuck scared in the snow and is frustrated.
