What is the reason for the poet to say ‘something there is that doesn’t love a wall’ in Robert Frost’s poem Mending Walll?

The speaker of the poem says so because he has experienced that ‘something’ is there that causes the cold ground under the wall to swell and burst. The ground bursts in a way that the boulders come spitting out from within to the outside automatically.

This ‘something’ is the unseen force of nature. According to the speaker, the nature breaks the wall because it does not like it to stay there.
