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.

    And miles to before I sleep. I always remember the line in my way of life. (Report) Reply

    I love the emotion in-between the last two lines. It's like for the whole poem he's daydreaming about the beautiful dark abyss. Then he hears himself say miles to go before I sleep and it wakes him from his stupor. So he gives a big sigh as the soul-crushing depression hits him about his reality before he says the last line. That's the magic of repeating that last line. The mood is so much different between them. (Report) Reply
