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

    My thoughts on the meaning.
    Woods, lives. He, creator. Village, minds of religious people/ general people. Snow, sorrow.

    Little horse, little me. Farmhouse, my usual thoughts. Frozen lake, silly heaven that has been promised. Darkest evening, my deepest thoughts. Year, life.

    Harness bells, prayers from my soul.

    Life is beautiful, at the same it's painful too, in one word; it's complex. But I devoted myself to know the 'true meaning' of life. I know it's going to be hard. But I won't stop at nothing except death to unbolt 'the truth'.

    Am I on the right way? Honestly, it doesn't matter what you say or what you don't say. Coz it feels I know better... He speaks my mind in a way. In a lot more creative way obviously.

    I also think that I misunderstood this poem when younger but still enjoyed it. Now I wonder if Frost is enjoying the deep alluring peace of simply letting go, perhaps death but returns to his responsibilities out of care for others. (Report) Reply

    The last 4 lines are the quotation of everyday life. I was in 8th grade when I first read this poem and I was not able to figure out it's actual meaning.....Now whenever I read it I get a different meaning that I have to go very long in my life and this is only the way where I am.

    Immortal verses
    Do we reflect on our own life - our promises, our responsibilities and ceaseless work? Yes, we too have miles to go before we took our eternal rest. It is said that the first Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru, had read this poem hours before he slipped into his eternal sleep! He was such a creative and energetic person, nay a visionary throughout his life. (Report) Reply

    This poem draws me in with childhood memories of days and evenings spent in snowy woods. The snow deadens all sound leaving only peace and quiet solitude. (Report) Reply

    The last two lines of the poem are repeated: And miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep,
    The first refers to a specific time - when he will get home and go to sleep. The second is general - when he will die. (Report) Reply
