Taking the time to walk alone at night, to clear a person's head is a peaceful thing to do. And this nightly stroll goes a long way in helping with the daily troubles that plagues the mind. But for others, the nightly walk is the time that they can feel most vulnerable, which can cause them to face whatever demons they may have. While others can view the night as a dark, depressing time, Robert Frost poem “Acquainted with the Night” shows that it also can be a time where people can reflect on themselves. The first time others read this poem, one would see the person's grief, pain and even their foreboding feelings about life. The feeling about not wanting to be bothered and also the loneliness. But it also shows that this isn't the only feeling going on. And when it's looked at closely, the reader can see that it is a time to walk away from the lonely depressing city, and to figure things out for oneself. Like when meeting up with the watchman or listening to a far off cry in the night, all that is going on, is the time with one’s self and the moonlight that shines in the night. In Robert Frost's poem “Acquainted with the Night” the theme is luminous and clearing of one's head. Frost shows us this by using symbolism in the tone from the beginning to the end of the poem. The first stanza introduces the readers to the feeling of familiarity with walking the streets in the rain alone at night. “I have walked out in rain – and back in rain.” This says to the reader that something is troubling the mind of the speaker while walking the streets. It doesn't matter to him that it's raining. He is using this time to walk his troubles away. The rain symbolizes life that is pouring down one thing after another on a person; one problem after another, one headache after another, and though it does not matter how strong a person may seem, there is no way of getting away from the rain. It is in the second line, “I have outwalked the furthest city light,” that is backing up the fact that the speaker is distancing himself from the rest of the city. And the fourth stanza then explains it like this, “was not to call me back or say goodbye.” In these words we can see that the speaker hears the call, but it was for someone else. The speaker uses

solution to reducing domestic violence involves better handling of the situation by law enforcement and by making the penalties more severe. When the police respond to a domestic violence call the perpetrator is apprehended, placed in jail for the night, and most of the time released the next day. This serves as a very weak way of dealing with obvious perpetrators because the victim (usually their wife) is forgiving by morning, therefore, not pressing charges. Instead, police should have charges…
