Blueberries

Robert Frost 1874 (San Francisco) – 1963 (Boston)



Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,
Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum
In the cavernous pail of the first one to come!
And all ripe together, not some of them green
And some of them ripe! You ought to have seen!

    This is a hard one to form a good interpretation on. It is a bit too abstract for me. However, I would say that it is about perspectives and how they can be right and wrong at the same time. Sort of like looking at a complex 3d shade but only seeing it from one side so it seems like a 2d shape. On one side, it's a square but on the other, it's a triangle.
