Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here

    This was the first Robert Frost poem I had ever read, and it's no wonder I have a continued appreciation of his work. I am no scholar, just a mom and blue collar worker, who doesn't read alot of poetry. Yet even from grade school days, this poem I have always remembered. (Report) Reply

    This beloved poem has been given a fine musical setting by Harvard compoer, Randall Thompson and is a respected standard in choral literature. (Report) Reply

    Even with 'miles to go', Frost takes time to stop, reflect and appreciate the evening... a wonderful lesson for all. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful, straightforward poem. It's very simple, yet haunting - the feeling of being alone out in the snowy woods with miles to go. I've heard this poem so many times it's hard to approach it critically because of an accompanying sense of nostalgia. That's the only reason Frost's use of rhyming works for me. I don't know that it would if I were reading this poem for the first time. (Report) Reply

    This is a wonderful poem, however, I'm more partial to his blank verse work, like 'Mending Wall'. Rhyme, even when its done exceptionally well, just grates on me a bit. (Report) Reply

    As a young school boy, this is the first poem I read in grammar school; had to memorize part of it for an english class. Being from New England (Maine) , I can easily relate to the wintry imagery. (Report) Reply
