Birches - Poem by Robert Frost

When I see birches bend to left and right
Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
I like to think some boy's been swinging them.

    Earth's the right place for love:
    I don't know where it's likely to go better.
    I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree

    well penned. Thanks for sharing.

    Here is a nugget of wisdom and though it is free don't think that it came cheap. This poem gains in wisdom and in beauty and in yearning the older you get. I climbed my birches when I was young and I swung from my brand of willows and now I understand what Frost first said to me many years ago. We are a lucky people to have access to such works as these (Report) Reply

    This is one of those non-rhyming iambic pentameter formats. I loved the description of the ice onthe branches; so vivid. One could almost hear the crackling he describes. I thing this poem appeals to some people so much because it describes the wistfulness of an older person thinking about lost youth. I hadn't read this before, but quite enjoyed it. (Report) Reply

    I agree with Barry Middleton. I usually do love Robert Frost, but on this particular poem I pretty much agree with the 6.6 rating. (Report) Reply

    Amazing how everyone seems to love this poet and this poem but somehow it gets rated 6.6 (Report) Reply

    My sentiments, too, Barry. I've seen it on this site before. Some of the best work of all time goes underappreciated here. Doesn't make sense at all.

    Birch trees by themselves are beautiful creation. Mixed with the wonderment and boyhood memories like only Robert Frost can evoke makes them marvelous also. (Report) Reply

    I had homework and had to write a poem and tell it to the class and it had to be at least one minute long. I didn't know what to do so I just got this one because it sounded peaceful and perfect for school. It worked and I got an A+. Already Reported Reply
