The Pasture Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Frost Type: poem Views: 81

Sponsored Links



I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;

I'll only stop to rake the leaves away

(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):

I shan't be gone long. -- You come too.



I'm going out to fetch the little calf

That's standing by the mother. It's so young,

It totters when she licks it with her tongue.

I shan't be gone long. -- You come too.

My favorite parts of this poem are the lines, "I sha'n't be long, you come too". This is what I would say to my childhood friend if I had to go and do a chore and interrupt our play time in the process. I would say, "hey, why don't you come with me?" To me that's such a happy thought. The chore isn't too hard after all, just clearing the leaves away and maybe waiting for the water to clear. Is there symbolism in the leaves and water? Maybe. Maybe the chore of clearing away the leaves is to clear ones conscience. In youth maybe it's easier to clear ones conscience, to say I'm sorry and be foregiven - to shake hands and make up. Maybe it's meant to be easier than we make it when we're adults and have more "baggage" and have a harder time forgiving or being forgiven (or even believing in forgiveness at all!) You come too.

i think robert frost meant his way of life or his life experiences. maybe trying to fix up his life clean the pasture that he means he going to clear out his life, \"I\'ll only going to stop to rake the leaves away\", means he will only stop to rake away the bad things in his life. And he will wait for hard things in life to clear up. \"clear the water\".

He's talking about sharing his life with someone he loves. The incidentals are unimportant--he could be going out to watch them bring in the sheaves; but he asks someone to come along. He wants to share the experiences of life with that other person.

I think that this poem is really confusing. I think that instead of wondering what he means, we should just look at the surface, He says he's going to the pasture. End of discussion

I think that when he said that hes going out to clean the pasture that he means he going to clear out his life, "I'll only going to stop to rake the leaves away", means he will only stop to rake away the bad things in his life. And he will wait for hard things in life to clear up. Hence "clear the water". It wont be long, you come to. He means in wont be that long, you come fix your life too. I think that the second part it referring to when he was young and where he journey began. Then once again, it shan't be long, you come too.

I strongly disagree with you. Even if we don't know what exactly Robert Frost meant, we can still speculate. First, you get the idea that the speaker is going out do chores. He's telling someone what's going on, IE a mother figure. Then, the next verse, the one that talks about the cow licking the calf, symbolizes motherhood. You notice how the calf is taken from her? It's the separation of mother and child as one grows up.

I think this poem actually is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. How anyone can think they can figure out what Robert might have meant is beyond me?
I think the only way we would know is to have the guy dug up and brought back to life just long enough to ask him. Then slap him silly and toss his ass back into the hole where he belongs.
Jesus... who cares what he meant he just makes and plays with words that confuses things. Just say what you mean damit keep things real and simple. Worthless piece of crap that someone has decided to call a poem and to have fun with in schools to see if anyone else could possibly think like this idiot. posted.
