To The Thawing Wind Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Frost Type: poem Views: 174

Come with rain. O loud Southwester!


Bring the singer, bring the nester;


Give the buried flower a dream;


make the settled snowbank steam;


Find the brown beneath the white;


But whate'er you do tonight,


bath my window, make it flow,


Melt it as the ice will go;


Melt the glass and leave the sticks


Like a hermit's crucifix;


Burst into my narrow stall;


Swing the picture on the wall;


Run the rattling pages o'er;


Scatter poems on the floor;


Turn the poet out of door.

I see this poem as a tribute to the southwestern wind.
A farewell to the winter I suppose

For me it isn't about nature at all. I think that Robert Frost needs a rest, so he decided to write this poem. Take a look at the first two lines. They are saying what he expects to find in his rest, for example. I hope you know what I mean because I am too lazy to type so yea I think that Frost writes this poem because he needs a rest.

I don't know much about what Robert Frost meant. But after reading the poem I do personally find a deeper meaning. The wind and rain bring change to this mans cold isolation. Giving birth to a flower could be to bring care or love to another. Maybe he has discovered a lover that has brought about this change. The heat from their affair make the settled snow bank steam. Bathe my window, make it flow. Melt it as the ices go; As to bring about love in his heart. Burst into my narrow stall could be translated sexually. Reverberating in climax that rattles his thoughts; topples his poetry forever changing the poet as he invites something new.
Yes, maybe it is about nature. ;)

u need to read a boys will from the beginning to grasp the deeper meaning of this poem. sure it can be seen as a pure nature poem. thats fine.
but look at the two preceding poems, storm fear and the wind and window flower. frosts gloss from the original edition of storm fear reads "he is afraid of his own isolation." in to the thawing wind he is desperate (the first trochaic poem in the collection echos this) to be freed and renewed by the changing season. spring brings new life and hope. "give the buried flower a dream."
read the last line "turn the poet out of door" and reflect back on storm fear.

the poem is about nature and the poet. He is a poet isolated like a hermit, in his tomb-like house, obsessively writing his poems. If the warm southwestern wind would come, he cannot wait for it to disrupt him, his house, and to be shown the door, and see his poems all over the floor: relief from winter, and relief from self-imposed writing winterthon.He cannot stop himelf at this point, but the weather change will.

The poem certainly suggest a want for a warmer feel. This feel for warmth could suggest few things. For one, a want for a change from such harsh and cold times. It is as though Robert wrote this poem as a want or somewhat of a need to get out of his stall. personally if I was writing a poem dealing with nature while in a cold house in Amherst, I would make the poem a wish too. :)

i think it deals with both nature and something deeper. its about nature but there\'s a deeper meaning also. for example, \"give the buried flower a dream\" obviously just isn\'t talking about a flower, at least that\'s how i perceive it. but dont go too crazy, it is what it is, and i dont think you should overanalyze it if you don\'t want to, just enjoy the poem for what it is.

I love how people argue that the poem has a deeper meaning but they have no idea what it is... If you can't show any facts to back up your belief then you have nothing to to bring to the arguement. I myself believe that the poem is mearly Frost expressing his eagerness for summer to get rid of the cruel cold.

I find it fascinating how pseudo-intellects argue that this poem is more profound with a mystical meaning, but yet have no idea what it is. Reminds me of those whom argue about the hidden meaning Beatles songs.
Anyone that has spent a long winter in a cold climate understands the meaning and beauty of this simple poem….a yearning for spring. His poems often dealt with rural farm life and the nature that surrounded him.

This poem is an extended metaphor, which means nature is a metaphor for something else.
Poetry isn't about sitting the poem in a chair and pounding at it to tell you what it's about. You have to go deeper than the literal meaning.

...there's definitely more than just the simple use of nature.. true he loves nature, but it is so much deeper than that.. and to make it even worse to understand Frost, he never reveals the real meanings. he loves to confuse you.. he is a BIG fan of parables because with parables- much like the poem- only certain individuals will extract the deep meaning the writer poured into it, where as others will read it on a surface level. the intellectual will grasp the core meaning, where as you obviously do not.

i think this poem is about nature. and how the thawing wind is pushing all the cold away. that the seasons are changing from winter to spring. :)

.: yea well... :.

.: To The Thawing Wing :.

Although I don't know the excact meaning of the poem, I very well know that Robert Frost isn't writing about nature itself. He only uses nature to describe another subject. If you were smart, you would look deeper into the poem and see the actual subject that he is trying to tell us, and if you thought it was excactly about nature then you must be stupid.

Robert Frost is a big nature fan so this is another one of his poems about...yea u guessed it...nature! this is about the coming of the spring and how it awakens things and livens them up. Its also thanking "the thawing wind" for pushing out the cold and hard winter.
