Transcript of Copy of The Runaway By Robert Frost

Once when the snow of the year was beginning to fall,
We stopped by a mountain pasture to say, “Whose colt?”
A little Morgan had one forefoot on the wall,
The other curled at his breast. He dipped his head
And snorted to us. And then we saw him bolt. We heard the miniature thunder where he fled,
And we saw him, or thought we saw him, dim and gray,
Like a shadow across instead of behind the flakes.
The little fellow’s afraid of the falling snow.
He never saw it before. It isn’t play
With the little fellow at all. He’s running away. He wouldn’t believe when his mother told him, ‘Sakes,
It’s only weather.’ He thought she didn’t know!
So this is something he has to bear alone
And now he comes again with a clatter of stone,
He mounts the wall again with whited eyes
Dilated nostrils, and tail held straight up straight.
He shudders his coat as if to throw off flies. “Whoever it is that leaves him out so late,
When all other creatures have gone to stall and bin,
Ought to be told to come and take him in.” Summary The Runaway by Robert Frost is a story about a colt but what if you were that colt? Robert Frost in lines 20 and 21 says "When all other creatures have gone to stall and bin, Ought to be told to come and take him in." This means that when you are abandoned, scared, and alone you wish that someone would be hospitable. Theme I think the theme of the poem is about a child who is scared of something he shouldn't be like in line 12 Frost says "He wouldn’t believe when his mother told him, ‘Sakes, It’s only weather.’"Then the child was abandoned as Robert Frost says in line 19 "Whoever it is that leaves him out so late,". In the poem the colt's mother abandons him most likely because of his fear of snow. When the colt comes back his mother does not let him in. The colt is now all alone in snowy weather and needs a place to stay. Now imagine yourself as that colt. All alone with no parents surrounded by your deepest fear, wishing for some hospitality. Without anyone to guide the child the child would still be afraid of his fear and never overcome it just as the colt never overcame his fear of snow. Analysis Robert Frost made the poem sound like a scared colt running because of the uneven rhyme scheme, tone rhythm, and sound. In line 8 the author uses a simile, "Like a shadow across instead of behind the flakes." Frost uses And as a form of repetition in the beginning of lines 15,16,and 17. As a form of assonance, in line 17, Frost says, "Dilated nostrils, and tail held straight up straight." Robert Frost uses snow to symbolize a person's fear of something they have never seen before. "The little fellow’s afraid of the falling snow. He never saw it before. It isn’t play
With the little fellow at all. He’s running away." Strong Word Choices Frost uses miniature instead of small or tiny in line 6. "We heard the miniature thunder where he fled". He uses dilated instead of stretched as Frost says in line 17, "Dilated nostrils, and tail held straight up straight." Frost uses stall and bin instead of sleep in line 20 of the poem. "When all other creatures have gone to stall and bin"
