Birches -Robert Frost

So was I once myself a swinger of birches.
And so I dream of going back to be.
It's when I'm weary of considerations,
And life is too much like a pathless wood
Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs
Broken across it, and one eye is weeping
From a twig's having lashed across it open.
I'd like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate willfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better.
I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.
That would be good both going and coming back.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches!

Ya know I was just thinking how easy it was to be young ..
I mean .. all u had to worry about was staying outta
trouble with your parents .. I mean as a child we all had
it so easy .. it would be nice to go back and relive all
those summer nights climbing trees and running wild with ll
y frieds .. but I know I can not do that .. I know I
can't .. I was just thinking about that !
Ne ways .. so I am still clueless of what I am gonna do
tonight .. I am just like blah .. I wanna go to the
movies .. I really do but I am not sure if Darcy will go
with me .. and Manda is out of town .. and like it is not
fun to go with anyone eles .. I wish Manda was in town .. I
wanna tell about everything that has happened .. I need to
talk to her ! I knwo she could help me .. I know she
could.. I am just so confussed .. : (
HUmm I wonder why Darcy and everyone eles I have talked to
give me basically the same advice .. but I can not bring
myself to follow their advice .. i think they could be
wrong .. but i know they are not! I wish I could once
again be a swinger of birches !
