I'm reading "The pasture" poem by Robert Frost:
I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;
I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I shan’t be gone long. – You come too.
I’m going out to fetch the little calf
That’s standing by the mother. It’s so young
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I shan’t be gone long. – You come too. \
My question is about the second line of the first stanza. He says he will only stop... Is he talking about stopping cleaning the pasture to clean the water of the stream?
