  1. Ownership and possessiveness- The discussion of the wall in the poem suggests us how the innate nature of human beings makes them possessive. The barrier is set only when people employ right to own.

    Boundaries and borders- The image of fence in the poem makes us think how far one should go to set barrier between fellow human beings.

    Tradition- The neighbour says what he learned from his father that good fences make good neighbours. It is a traditional thought coming from an ancient animal memory. So the poem also deals with this fight against tradition of regression.
