A Late Walk Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Frost Type: poem Views: 240

When I go up through the mowing field,

The headless aftermath,

Smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew,

Half closes the garden path.

And when I come to the garden ground,

The whir of sober birds

Up from the tangle of withered weeds

Is sadder than any words

A tree beside the wall stands bare,

But a leaf that lingered brown,

Disturbed, I doubt not, by my thought,

Comes softly rattling down.

I end not far from my going forth

By picking the faded blue

Of the last remaining aster flower

To carry again to you.

To understand and know what a poem is about is to express it as a life story for example. " Hearts palpitated" meaning : I was scared. In order to figure out you must know what a word means for example: Palpitated means " beat raipidly"

This poem is about a man and his ugly wife. They both like to butt-bash their blubbery asses together in a mid-air butt-five. The sad part of this poem is that they have indigestion and whenever they smack their big butts together, they shit everywhere and let the poop splatter all over the place. They also fart which makes everything smell really bad. If I were Robert Frost I would buy the man and his wife some butt plus so that that they can only shit at work. Even worse is that they whistle while they fart for 20 seconds. So nasty.

1st stanza:-
The poet tells us that he went through a mowing field of hay. The winter had began arriving at that time of the year. Because of the cold the hay that had been standing upright was now laying smoothly on the ground with the heavy dew. It had half blocked the path of the garden with its death.
2nd stanza:-
The poet reaches the garden ground and the simple birds that had been whirring happily in the warmer months but now their whirring seemed sadder than anything. They had lost their innocence and now it was all about business and survival.
3rd stanza:-
The poet looks at a naked tree that has lost all is leaves. The last leaf had become brown in color and as it softly fell on the ground the poet thought that his thoughts were the cause of its falling. The tree had now become bare and naked for the harshest time of the year.
4th stanza:-
The poet ends his walk as he picks the last aster flower which has now faded but it had been once colorful and in its prime. Te poet uses this remaining flower to bring joy to someone for whom he cared as we see that he takes the flower for someone.

so this poem is obviously about how Robert frost is yearning the summer season. When he says that the birds are sober, he is referring to how the birds become dormant and less cheerful after the summer season. Also, when he said he \"carried the last remaining aster flower\" he means that it is the last flower of the season. He seems to dislike the colder months and is longing for the returning summer season

We think this poem is about the loss of humanity and the light in the poem symbolises humanity and the contrast between the two. With the \'luminary clock\' represents how the persona does not care about time. But the clock also represents the moon, how the persona is acquainted with the night, but not friends with it. Frost must of had a lonely, sad, and dark life. He would have experienced many things in the dark or in the night as this poem is about depression.

He was prescient. He wrote this for me...and for my love who lays dying. Goodbye Jerri...I'll see you in Dreamland.

For high school I had to choose a Robert Frost poem that I hadn’t already covered to talk about, and I love this one. By reading a lot of Frost’s other poems I have learned that he loves the spring and summer, with its vein pumping with life, and in a way he detests the winter and the autumn. This poem says a lot about the days that his sorrow thinks “are beautiful as days can be” (from the poem My November Guest) and the love he shares for nature. The first stanza represents a type of closer that is happening to the seasons. Although that is only face value. I always thought that he might be comparing his whole walk with the end of something he love or loved him and nature is the symbolic jest to his feelings. I like to think of the second stanza with a bird sitting upon dead romance and play that were during the spring and summer; the birds must depart soon you see and take what joy they have left with them. Some how in the third stanza, Frost thinks that he is at fault for his thought caused the last leaf of a tree to fall toward the ground. Yet threw all this deep heavy wording, there is hope and pain tied in one. The last of the blue aster flower will not die in vein. There is one who could enjoy this till its last day, and in this action I believe that he shares his pain/feeling with another person who cares for him (perhaps to a grave?).
I just love how many meanings this poem could bring to a reader. You could take it as it is at face value and tell me that Frost will just miss his warm days to the cold ones, or there could be another story saturated in deep pain, grief, or passion. It has become one of my favorite poems that I will read again and again. I have to agree with you, “Beautiful”!

This poem represents lost love,
This is kind of a depressing poem about Robert having a lost love who is already married. But When he says that "I pick up the faded blue of the last remaining aster flower to carry again to you". It means that he will carry again his love in the form of a flower, To the person that he loved dearly.

This poem represents so much loss.

A hayfield with upright stocks and heads of fruit swaying in the wind has so much life in it. Now, in the headless aftermath, not only is it void of life, but it half closes the garden path, blocking other joys of life by it's death.

Sober birds are indeed sad. They have lost the joy and innocence they once had. Now they are all about business and survival. Possibly only having yet one more brief year to live themselves.

The near naked tree loses it's single last element that may hide it's shame through the winter. But alas, it becomes completely exposed, just in time for the harshest time a full season's cycle has to offer.

In all of humanity, through all the loss and sadness, one can find joy. Even if it's the last remaining aster flower, no doubt beginning itself to lose the plump, erect, colorful life it once held in it's prime. That flower can be taken and used to create joy in a heart. Additionally, I see that he doesn't pick it to bring joy to his own heart, but to bless another. Beautiful.
