(To hear us talk)

The tree the tempest with a crash of wood

Throws down in front of us is not bar

Our passage to our journey's end for good,

But just to ask us who we think we are

Insisting always on our own way so.

She likes to halt us in our runner tracks,

And make us get down in a foot of snow

Debating what to do without an ax.

And yet she knows obstruction is in vain:

We will not be put off the final goal

We have it hidden in us to attain,

Not though we have to seize earth by the pole

And, tired of aimless circling in one place,

Steer straight off after something into space.

And thank you Deb for providing this spiaecl space that drew Kim out. I used to love reading the stuff Kim wrote in high school and college. But then she didn't feel confortable writing for so long after. I've been waiting for over 20 years to read something she wrote. Even though she's sitting here beside me thinking I'm making to much of this it does mean a lot.

We push and push our agendas on the world and on our own lives - which in turn affects the people and the world around us.
Sometimes life, nature, love, can stop us in our tracks and make us feel powerless.. this is when we should succumb to the universe and let it guide our path.. we can have our goals but we are powerless to the world

I feel the poem is less positive than saying we can overcome obstacles, although that is a possible interpretation. Perhaps Frost is saying the "we" as humans are so ambitious to change the world around us that if we could we would "seize earth by the pole/ And, tired of aimless circling in one place,/ Steer straight off after something into space." The line "Debating what do without an ax" also suggests that we feel helpless without the technology we have created to "attain" changes in the world.

This is one of my favorite poems. One reason is merely because it can be interpretted in so many different ways. Namely, the most obvious interpretation of what Frost is saying is that obstacles can be overcome. The last two lines of the third stanza state "We have it hidden in us to attain, / Not though we have to seize earth by the pole". These words of inspiration basically tell the reader that every human has the ability to overcome obstacles placed before them, and though sometimes this ability is challenging to uncover, it can be done. Yet another interpretation of this poem is that Frost is saying that, in an effort to overcome obstacles of daily life, people overlook their surroundings. They fail to stop and take a step back, appreciating the beauty of nature around them. While both interpretations are somewhat opposing, neither is wrong. It is all in the eye of the beholder- or in this case, the mind of the reader.
