Question and answer
Q: Explain what Frost means by the simile that occurs in lines 43-47 User: Read through "Birches" again and list three metaphors Frost uses.
A: It describes how dull and bleak life is. That even small, there will always be challenges and Had to find and read the poem. [ I think a significant metaphor is not about the girls: you're right, [ that is a simile. I think the significant metaphor begins when Frost writes: "I'd like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over... ... "I'd like to go by climbing a
birch tree, And climb black branches up a snow white trunk Toward (<- italicized) heaven, tilll the tree could bear no more, But dipped its top and set me down again. That would be good, both going and coming back.' (the metaphor being the poet leaving earth (outta here) and beginning again (a rebirth of sorts) by 'swinging a birch tree...' ) ] they will irritate you. ]
