First, and probably most important, is the opening: "My Sorrow, when she's here with me,". The opening line is almost a tease, reflecting the speaker's uncertainty as he attempts to compare his lover with a summer's day.
She and therefore he is 'glad the birds are gone away', preferring solitude at this time.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder is a phrase that rings true and this is present throughout the poem. The one, really big problem with this interpretation is that it is difficult to imagine how the speaker's sorrow--his actual emotion--could misunderstand him.
In reading a lot of Robert Frost I have noticed a lot of depression and darkness is abundant, kind of like a quizzical Edgar Allan Poe.In my view, it is highly unlikely that any of these tragic biographical events formed the basis for this poem — although the loss of his mother in November may indeed have been a catalyst. She was not as original as I in thought but she dominated my art with the power of her character and nature.

As the poem commences, Sorrow is personified as a woman and someone whom the poet dearly loves. He then goes on to introduce the pros and cons of the weather, from an idyllic English summer's day to a less welcome dimmed sun and rough winds. We believe that his is a voice of integrity that invites us into fields and pastures and along the brooks of New England. In that volume, "My November Guest" is labelled: "He is in love with being misunderstood.
Thou, thee and thy are used throughout and refer directly to the lover, the fair youth. Its imagery is excellent and matches well the scene outside my windowand it has an excellent rhythm, being written in iambic tetrameter.
If we assume that the speaker stands for Frost a dangerous assumption, usually, but probably justified herethen we have some options, both figurative and literal. And we occasionally feel that along the way, we may even discover something of Frost himself.
