Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening


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

    A beautiful, straightforward poem. It's very simple, yet haunting - the feeling of being alone out in the snowy woods with miles to go. I've heard this poem so many times it's hard to approach it critically because of an accompanying sense of nostalgia. That's the only reason Frost's use of rhyming works for me. I don't know that it would if I were reading this poem for the first time. (Report) Reply

    This is a wonderful poem, however, I'm more partial to his blank verse work, like 'Mending Wall'. Rhyme, even when its done exceptionally well, just grates on me a bit. (Report) Reply

    As a young school boy, this is the first poem I read in grammar school; had to memorize part of it for an english class. Being from New England (Maine) , I can easily relate to the wintry imagery. (Report) Reply
