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

    i always thought he got a NOBEL
    they made me cry
    when they told me off
    but why less than 5 for this
    poet I get so many 5
    its not perhaps as pure

    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

    As a Student read the poem to secure marks but to enjoy the beauty of these lines I come back here many times only to re read each line so realistic in nature! (Report) Reply

    Life is like that and we have to acknowledge the part we play in it is ever moving and connected. We are all attached in one way or another. (Report) Reply

    Frost was the master of the light-hearted verse with the deep meaning. Here we have a lone rider, a quiet wood, and a somewhat anxious horse. If that were the whole of it, the reader might pull a small smile across his or her lips and turn the page. But Frost won't let us off that easy. The final line, writ once, is the source of the small smile. Writ twice, it is a haunting refrain. Why twice? , our reader asks. Certainly, it adds nothing to the meter of the verse. There is no rhyme scheme to conclude. So, why twice? Much like the neglected road of another work, Frost, I feel, is asking us to not ignore the totality of our lives. Stop, look down each road, enjoy the beauty of a winter wood for a few minutes before carrying on with the hurried pace of modern life. The woods are beautiful, and now I can move on. (Report) Reply

    CMr Rao, your English is not good enough to begin to understand Frost's work.

    I agree, a second rate versifier whose only skill was to elevate his mundane thoughts into mockable epics, aand amazingly his lack of skill is celebrated, which I suppose identifies his adepts' depth of thought

    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
