Answer #1

This poem is like a dialouge between the poet and those wo explore new paths. The poet first addresses his enquiry to those explores .He wants to know what inspires them to go forth .He wonders if t hey go in search of something new . They are climbers who scale the most difficult height to reach the tallest mountain in the world.
Everest is that bosom peak .It is all covered with snow or ice .It has thus its barren bosom which offers nothing to the exploring adventurer .It has no secrate to reveal to him . Still the explorer goes on.The poet is curious to know why men shold strive so hard and undertake dangerous journey to the summit. He asks is there is some wonder in the remoteness of those height that lie beyond the range of common knowledge . May be there is some wisdom , some beauy that lie beyond the imagination of the wise.
