A Witness Tree1942As I came to the edge of the woods,

Thrush music -- hark!

Now if it was dusk outside,

Inside it was dark.Too dark in the woods for a bird

By sleight of wing

To better its perch for the night,

Though it still could sing.The last of the light of the sun

That had died in the west

Still lived for one song more

In a thrush's breast.Far in the pillared dark

Thrush music went --

Almost like a call to come in

To the dark and lament.But no, I was out for stars;

I would not come in.

I meant not even if asked;

And I hadn't been.

.: :.

Such a beautifully written poem by the author who has a gift of nature observations. Anyone agree?

.: :.

the thrush is a robin, and it is unable to find meaning in life. therefore the peom is about self motivation.

.: :.

It is an end rhyme scheme poem with an ABCD rhyme scheme. It is mainly about resisting evil and resisting bad temptations.

.: :.

this is not an ABAB scheme, its an ABCB rhyme scheme.

This poem is actually very simple. It\'s about three things: beauty, choice, and aloneness (not loneliness). Everything else is someone reading their own thoughts into it.

I don't think it has anything to do with resisting dark temptations. It is about humility. The last line indicates that while the thrush song may sound like a call to him, it is a call for it's own sake. It is a dialogue between the birds and the sun. The bird is singing only because it wants to. He at first interprets the song in human-centric terms and then corrects himself.

.: :.

Come in by Robert Frost is a slightly confusing poem. It definitely is an ABAB poem, with lots of rhythm. It really depends on how you read or say it. Every other line has 7, 8, or 9 syllables, but if you say it right, it sounds good. The other lines have 3, 4, or 5 syllables, and rhyme. Robert may be talking about a bird singing in this poem. He says the night is too dark for a bird, but it still sings.

The poem is perhaps an explanation of the attractiveness of evil and the ability to say no to the distractions of life. The speaker clearly had goals in life and the imagery that is included shows how he or she had the ability to say no. "I was out for the stars" and I "would not come in." From these lines, it can be assumed that he or she does not want to enter into a troublesome realm of temptation headed by the "darkness" of "the woods."

.: Come in By Robert Frost :.

The poem is about the contrast of nature as well as the general darker and lighter side of life, on a more metaphyical level. Frost sets it up pefectly for contrast by putting the persona between the dark woods and the dusk (darkening day). Evidence that the place is not suiting for a person is the description of the woods, being dark and lament. Also the restriction of the movement of the thrush "Too dark in the woods for a bird by sleight of wing", implys on a deeper level that we are restricted in ways, when we are feeling the darker side of life. The Thrush however can still let out a powerful cry in this seemingless restricting woods. Frost is describes it as been as powerful as the last light of sun maybe implying that in every negetive "dark" situation there is optimism and "light" hidden in it and there are means of escaping these restrictions, in life by rising above it, using given power.

.: On "Come In" :.

The man came to the edge of the woods and heard the enticing call of the thrush. The world he lived in was darkening but the thought of giving in to death (by suicide or merely succumbing to a sickness) we entirely dark. The thrush sang to him but it wasn't asking him to come in (as is evidenced by the later line about not being asked to come in). The thrush sang with what seemed like the last available light in the world. This call was enticing but it wasn't an invitation to succumb to the darkness. The man was looking for light! He was out for stars. Have you ever gone outside to look at the stars? You are explicitly searching the sky for those radiant glimpses of light in the vast dark canvas of the sky. This man was out looking for light and he noticed the call of the thrush and the thought of going into the darkness...but it wasn't truly enticing because he had set out looking for light. he meant not to go in even if he had been asked, and he hadn't even been asked.

.: :.

Coming to the edge of the woods is an example of wanting to fall for failure or suicide. It is sad but still alive outside, but inside it is nothing. It is also too sad and lament in the woods for a person. It may make it easier for one moment in time, but will not be good for all time. However the bird can still sing(Success and Life can still thrive). The light of life and success is still alive for one more try. The music is tempting him to give up on life and the trials it has shown him. But no, he is out for success and glory and refuses to fall for failure.
