Birches by Robert Lee Frost



Literary Analysis (Summary)

Birches is a romantic poem that appreciates the beauty of nature. A birch is an ornamental and pendulous tree that mostly grows near lakes and rivers because it requires well-drained soil for proper growth. This tree grows in temperate climate around the world. An example of such climate is New England in America where Robert Frost had his early childhood. New England is one of the earliest English settlements in America. The Connecticut River which feeds the coastal towns of New England nourishes the birches, which provide a sort of entertainment for children as they delight in swinging the tree.
