Come In by Robert Frost Robert Frost is a well known American poet often associated with beautiful scenes from the New England area However the deeper meanings of his poems is often overlooked by their reader many critics use words such as loneliness anguish and frustration to describe some of Frosts famous poems In the poem Come In Frost tells about the change from day to night and makes a parallel statement about stepping over the edge of life into death The poem is filled with images of darkness which becomes a symbol of death and music from songbirds which help to build a chaotic scene The speaker seems to have a feeling of anxiety and a certain sense of awe toward the situation taking place in the poem These feelings help display the poems overall theme that nature and life itself has a mysteriousness to it that should not be taken lightly In the first stanza the speaker immediately makes reference to the boarder between light and dark The edge of the woods is a boarder between the nighttime of the inside and the light of the outside as the speaker states in lines 3 and 4 The Thrush music line 2 sets a mysterious scene from the very beginning The man standing at the edge of the woods notices the music coming from the woods and it grabs his attention as is evidenced by the word hark 2 The darkness on the inside of the woods gives the music a sense of mystery since the man cannot be sure where the music is actually coming from or what is going on inside the woods The dusk outside 3 contrasting with the darkness on the inside paints an eerie image that aids the mysterious nature of this setting The rhyme used in lines 2 and 4 draws attention to the two strongest words in the opening stanza hark and dark
