The poem uses nature in a way to discuss relationships. The first paragraph uses specific words that stick out to the reader.
The words "diamond-strung" and "stained a single human breast" are easy to see that they are speaking of a diamond necklace. However, at the same time it is speaking of a trap set. The spider put his cobweb on a flower and a butterfly fell victim to it. At the same time, a bird doesn't care and continues to go on about her life.

This type poetry was originally sung accompanied by a lyre. Frost is primarily a lyric poet. The stricken flower bent double and so hung. And still the bird revisited her young. A butterfly its fall had dispossessed A moment sought in air his flower of rest, Then lightly stooped to it and fluttering clung. On the bare upland pasture there had spread O'ernight 'twixt mullein stalks a wheel of thread And straining cables wet with silver dew.
