Can we interpret 'Birches' by Robert Frost as having sexual innuendo?
"girls on hands and knees"
"took the stiffness out of them"
COULD be interpretted like that.
you could maybe sat that the possible sexual undertones is somewhat childish humour and reinforces childishness but in the context of something very adult?
bla bla therefore reinforcing the themes of childishness but also being an adult?
i don't know i wouldn't say it myself.
