I don't know Frost well, but the image of the scythe whispering to the ground evokes in me the image of death with it's scythe. It would seem the emphasis on silence supports this image of death. It seems that the sweetest dream that labour knows may be just life and living and the inevitability of death.Never thought about scythe and death. Seems obvious now.... I think Sharon's word "unnerving" is appropriate. I definitely think there is something here about death but also peace maybe. I'm trying to reconcile it with the idea of labour. Maybe this sort of labour when accepted without complaint, while difficult and not without effort, can bring a sense of peace much like a life lived and accepted without complaint ultimately brings death but also that same peace. I may be stretcing here. Thoughts??? 1FW
