Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening - Poem by Robert Frost

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

    A very good poem. We can see the master artist, with a few strokes, evoking an eerie atmosphere to fit in the conclusive stanza. (Report) Reply

    How many miles have I traveled in the woods,
    Where I collect the memories to upkeep,
    Traveling with a suit case makes me a nomad,
    What God wills for me really shrouds with clouds. (Report) Reply

    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is among my favorites. I memorized it, when much younger. This poem never fails to give me such a warm feeling of nostalgia. I’m very glad that it was written. (Report) Reply

    This is one of my favorite poems written by R.F.; had to memorize the last stanza for an English project in elementary school!

    'Stopping by woods on a snowy evening' is one of the shortest lyrics of Frost which carries a deep meaning. It can be regarded as one of Frost's most moving, meaningful and artistically superb poem. Apparently, the poem is descriptive. It is dark and cold. The poet stops his sleigh by the lovely, dark woods and lingers in there to watch the snow filling up the wood. He, however realizes that he can't stay there for long because he has miles to go before he sleeps. The important aspect to his journey is that there is no end to it. After one milestone or station of rest or activity another milestone appears and thus even at the time of death, one cannot cover the whole part of this journey. Great poem. (Report) Reply

    The poem is a figurative and metaphorical summary of life. The horseman is every man of the world; the horse stands for the resources of life; the forest is the world where the journey is to take place; the end of the journey is the end of life; the owner of the forest is God who is never completely known to man though man thinks that he is unknown to his God as Eve in Paradise Lost Book 9 expects.Every man is tired but he is to continue his voyage .

    i have been reading this poem so often since i was just 9. this person got me interested in writing and reading poetry. Robert Frost wrote uncomplicated poems on things that people don't even care to notice. He really is the best poet EVER and will remain like that.
    The lines 'I have miles to go before i sleep, miles to go before I sleep' send a chill through my spine, everytime i read them... (Report) Reply
