Desert Places

Snow falling and night falling fast, oh, fast
In a field I looked into going past,
And the ground almost covered smooth in snow,
But a few weeds and stubble showing last.

yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
The reading of the poem was very robotic!
No depression but much loneliness, a human feels what he must feel, alone without redemption, mortal without recourse. Yes, accountability, but we are all accountable. What else is there, when the only way out is the way fear shows you?
I believe that Robert Frost describes how a human being emotionally can react when suffering from depression or loneliness. It is likely that a person suffering from these conditions can see themselves in a lost dark space with no way out or perhaps feeling cold in a lonely place without road map with any sense of direction. It is obvious that Robert Frost apparently gives accountability how situations can influence our emotional state of mind and gives realization that his view is the way of his creativity.
Awesome I like this poem, check mine out
I particularly enjoyed Frost's use of echoing sounds in the poem. the first line's fast is followed by the identical F sound in the word field, and the ast of past. This is repeated throughout the poem in several instances, and gives a the reader a spacial understanding of the emptiness of these desert places- something particularly powerful when the speaker goes as far as to internalize all the emptiness of the universe into himself. Feel free to use that, future student.

Wow! this write is so unique it speaks of the real terrors of the unkown..fabulous! .. :)
Always haunted by this poem. Particularly beautiful: I am too absent-spirited to count; / The loneliness includes me unawares. And the wonderful rhyme, almost incongruous in its cleverness: They cannot scare me with their empty spaces Between stars - on stars where no human race is. Wonderful poet! Sometimes under-rated by posturers, alas!
This is an excellent poem. It's tightly controlled, terse, and deep. The theme covered here is similar to that of Dickinson's poem in which she says 'The brain has corridors surpassing/Material place.' We needn't look very far outward: We have terrifying realms within. The landscape and the attendant loneliness Frost describes is the sort of thing that many Romantic poets have done, which is to project their feelings onto nature, though perhaps at the time they were writing their poems there was no distinguishing outer from inner.
It sounds to me like the guy is describing being lost in the woods. A sort of calm seems to come over the guy in the poem. But I'm not a big Robert Frost fan either. His poems do not have that touch of cool, that is in all good poetry.
