After Apple Picking
This poem kinda makes me think about myself...I take on such a heavy workload and I am exhaused by the time that it is over. I take 17 credits and I work 6, sometimes 7 days per week. I also need to leave time to clean my house, play with my dogs, and to spend time with my fiancee, friends, and family.
Mending Wall was a pretty interesting poem. It intrigued me because there were a lot of different ways in which you can analyze the poem. When I read it the first few times, i was very confused. I had to read it 3 times before thoughts came to my head. What I thought of was when I was little, my neighbor had a huge privacy fence. All of the neighborhood kids were afraid of her. We all thought she was a mean, little, old lady. But as in this poem, she just wanted someone to talk to. I really liked how Frost related this poem to nature and animals.
