This poem has been on my mind recently. Maybe its my misinterpretation and newfound optimism, but I believe that Robert Frost is not critical or pessimistic about the chore of apple picking. When I first read this poem the name of a former teacher popped into my mind. This teacher is amazing and one day I hope to be half as decent at the profession as them.
The speaker in Frost’s poem cherishes the apples and recognizes their beauty, but the season of apple picking was long and hard. He is ready for rest. For me this poem is amazing because its shows how frustration and tiredness from work is not always a bad thing. Its natural and the speaker in frost’s poem lets the reader know they are not alone.
