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

    i can only see a metaphor here.. woods represent a beautiful women whom he meets on his way of life bt she belongs to someone else(his house is in the village, he will not see me stopping there)
    horse represents the poet's heart. which asks him if there is a mistake (ofcourse because he is on his way for somthing else, the woman belongs to some1 else) darkest evening of the year represents a thing which wont b observed by others. poet appreciate the beauty of woman (woods are lovely dark and deep) but he cannot be wth her for more time as he already has some1 in his life (promises to keep) and he wil hv to go back to his own life and he cannot have her.(miles to go before i sleep)

    Is it bad I discovered this poem from watching Elementary? Either way I love it! ! ! It has to be my second favorite Robert Frost poem, right after the 'The Road Not Taken.'

    its a poem of beauty, i'm so mesmerized. Whenever i go through this poem, i feel it; taste it but at the end it leaves me ever thirsty for eternity, i want to feel it more deeply, want to enjoy it more intensely, but like the poet gives the reason,

    ............... promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    Nature can't be owned. Perhaps it is civilization that breaks all the promises. A beautiful poem, with some very deep undercurrents,

    This poem is soothing every time I think of it. I've learned it by heart and find myself often quoting it.

    Duty rather than Death; yes I think possibly so. Although I think it can be taken entirely literally, as well. I had to memorize this poem in elementary school, and still remembered two-thirds of it at age 58! I think of it when walking my dogs through woods close to home during the Winter. It leaves me with a peaceful state of mind.

    Duty, yes; I think so, too. I had to memorize this poem when I was in elementary school, and I still remembered two-thirds of it at age 58! I think of it when walking my dogs through woods close to home during the Winter. It leaves me with a peaceful state of mind.
