Mowing Analysis

Author: Poetry of Robert Lee Frost Type: Poetry Views: 1550

There was never a sound beside the wood but one,

And that was my long scythe whispering to the ground.

What was it it whispered? I knew not well myself;

Perhaps it was something about the heat of the sun,

Something, perhaps, about the lack of sound--

And that was why it whispered and did not speak.

It was no dream of the gift of idle hours,

Or easy gold at the hand of fay or elf:

Anything more than the truth would have seemed too weak

To the earnest love that laid the swale in rows,

Not without feeble-pointed spikes of flowers

(Pale orchises), and scared a bright green snake.

The fact is the sweetest dream that labour knows.

My long scythe whispered and left the hay to make.

I believe Frost and his blade are actually acting like they're cutting grass, but secretly making gloves and selling them on the black market in exchange for sexual favours from garden gnomes. I don't blame him really, as I've had some menacing gobjobs from those little porcelain princes ;)

I think this could be a Meatphor for Godzilla Mowing down Tokyo.

Frost was widely known for his involvement in the Transcendentalism movement so I believe this poem could have had those views in the manner it allows so much personification to an object and pays so much attention to nature and observations he allows his mind to make as it wanders.

I believe this poem represents how the sun is very hot and melts ice cubes.

The blade is whispering becauseit's complaining, it would not be saying anything good with a whisper. He goes on to explain this by saying, "It was no dream of the gift of idle hours, Or easy gold at the hand of fay or elf:".

.: Analysis :.

This Poem reinforces Frost's love for nature and how he enjoy's solitude. Indeed he does use personification when talking of his scythe, implying that it whispered (the closest way of describing the genuine noise of the garden tool) however he then tells us of what it may have said, which explicitly implies that this inanimate object can speak. This personification may be because, like many other inanimate objects (such as cars) people grow attached to things they spend a great deal of time with, and this particular instrument would be held close to the body, and the task it is being used for would take time and due to the lonliness of the job , attachments would be made. This poem could also tell us that the best dreams are those based on realistic events and things opposed to those of fantasy and make believe.

.: it is a very hot day and :.

it is a very hot day and he uses personification when he says that his scythe is whispering because he is just so cool!consists of Frost talking about his grass-cutting tool, his scythe. He mentions “the heat of the sun” and that there is a “lack of sound.” This gives the feel of a very hot day, too hot for anyone else to be outside. He uses personification, as he says the scythe is “whispering” its way through the tall grass, as it is too hot and quiet to do any more, to “speak.”
