For a detailed analysis you might want to check out Gradesaver's summary and analysis page for this poem. What Frost depicts in this work is the American desire for boundaries and possessions; think about how we fence off our yards and property today. The Mending Wall always reminds me of the old woman who lives next to me. My children never heard anything from her except the stock, "Get off my grass." Had she been able to close off the front yard and sidewalk; she would have.
