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.

    nice piece

    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

    This may be disrespectful to those who worship Frost but in my opinion he was a master of solipsistic doggerel. Whether mending walls, or taking a road or riding in a snowy forest, he imports to the mundane a seeming profundity which is quite laughable. Earlier I had recounted the experience related from the point of view of the poor horse who bore him that night; literally bearing a bore. I have named the horse Dobbin.

    Yes, says Dobbin, his language clear,
    This poltroon on my back
    He's more than a little queer
    It's alright for him, notebook in hand
    To pen his boring verse
    But it is me, without a rug
    Who in snow is left standing here!
    My hooves and shanks
    They are freeziing cold
    Why must I be his horse?
    It was pain enough,
    While he, again
    Notepad and pen in hand
    Deliberated on his choice of road
    But this night is even worse (Report) Reply

    I suppose those who can't do critique.

    Your poem reminds me how good Frost is.

    You got it, that was what the horse was thinking, well done.

    What a malignant poltroon you are, sir.
