A Patch Of Old Snow Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Frost Type: Poetry Views: 1177

Mountain Interval1916There's a patch of old snow in a corner

That I should have guessed

Was a blow-away paper the rain

Had brought to rest.It is speckled with grime as if

Small print overspread it,

The news of a day I've forgotten --

If I ever read it.

.: :.

In the poem, Robert Frost seems to focus on nature, specifically snow. From this poem, I get a feeling of regret and sadness. I interpreted that Frost wished he had done something a different way. I think what Robert Frost is trying to teach us from this poem is that you have to learn from your mistakes. I interpreted that he is trying to tell us to not waste time and live our lives to their fullest. I think he wrote this poem because he was depressed for not using his time wisely while he was still could.

its about forgotten thoughts that he never looked back at, that is what if I ever read it meant. It may also mean the snow is old and so is winter, so he wants spring, and never look back at snow.

Think about the little things in life and enjoy them. Don\'t treat the past memories like an old patch of snow. Live life to the fullest and enjoy it.

The little details in life make us stop and think about how they happened and the wonders of these thoughts make us forget the other bad events of our day

here he sees a paper datis crushed lik old snow 2 a corner....he says he shld hav guessed it was a blown away paper bt instead mistakes it 4 a lump of snow...its dirted dat is speckled wid grime...dats is dotted wid mud n dirt bcz its thrown 2 a corner...lik sum print over it....it ws da news of sum day dat he forgot....he says sarcasticly dat "if i ever read it"...bcz he dsnt knw wat is thr in da paper ...but was guessing it althrough...n he dsnt knw if he has read it or not....so in da whole poem he describes how it luked...n only later said wat it was.da last 2 lines can be analysed anyway.

.: t he real meaning 2 :.

i think that this poem means that the rain is like new news and i lays other new to rest and the old information is forgotten, that is what i think this poem is all about is that we need to remember things that happened in the past so that we can remember it and not make the same mistake twice...so in my opinion people just need to slow down and take some time to remember things in the past that are forgotten. like for instance everybody remembers things that have holidays named after them, but what about the korean war they call that war the forgoten war so maybe people in general need to slow down and not be in such a rush

.: The Real Meaning :.

This is my analysis of the writing. I think that the newspaper represents what you should do. What other people expect you top do. That Robert Frost should have read the news every day therfore seeing something like a patch of old grimey snow he should automaticly in his head think it was something upstadnding like a newspaper. However doing something that other people expect, like reading the news, sometimes sheilds you from what things really are. He says he should have read it but at the end he states that he may have never even read it. That if he was close minded and only did as others expected him to do, then he and all people can be blind to the truth and really just be blinded to what something really is.
