we Attitude Of Robert Frost To Nature In Birches ~ Naija Poets
Childhood reminiscence led Robert Frost into Birches, a poem about swinging the birch trees. The poet is nature oriented and the poem "Birches" is no difference as it delighted the poet in childhood and the memory in adulthood. The poet even used many comparisons to relate his ideas to nature "And life is too much like a pathless wood/ Where your face burns and tickles with cobwebs/ Broken across it, and one eye is weeping/ From a twig's having lashed across it open"
As a child, one is free of back-aching worries, unnecessary egoistic rivalries, and many more. Those with rural background as Frost would solace in the ever available vegetational amusements such as swinging
Birches. The poet also described the trees as enduring "And they seem not to break; though once they are bowed/ So low for long, they never right themselves" (line 15-16)

Besides the description of the birches. And besides the freedom and delight derived in swinging the birches. The poet made mention of many nature elements as "ice-storms" in line 5 and 22, "snow-crust" in line 11, "woods" in line 17, "Earth" in line 52, "cobwebs" in line 45, etc.
