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
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

    This is the best poem I've ever read, heard or felt. I'd read this poem in class 11th for the Ist time and I felt an inspirational and motivational energy. really this is one of the best poems for them who lead to astray in my opinion. (Report) Reply

    nice piece

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    Sometimes we don't know without a doubt the meaning of a poem (or of a piece of beautiful prose) . But we know that it becomes a part of the music of our life, that it strikes a chord within us. I watched a Vietnamese man recite this poem for Anthony Bourdain on Parts Unknown because, I think, he felt it represented America. He obviously loved it. It was touching for me; I understood how this poem affected him, as it has me, and I saw how a poem can bring people from distant places together. (Report) Reply
