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.

    I love Robert Frost's Poem Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening. My favorite verse in the poem is:

    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. (Report) Reply

    This is the first poem I memorized years ago. Recited it thousands of times. Everyone commenting breaks it down wrong. But take from it what you want like any art. It is what you want it to be. The day is Dec 21st (the darkest evening of the year) the person is not riding on a horse they are being pulled by two horses hence comparison (my little horse). The person is a salesman that is normally in a hurry going past the woods, but stops this evening to enjoy the view (must think it queer to stop without a farm house near) the horses are used to stopping at farm houses. The little horse is the lead horse wearing the bells. They have more stops to make to keep promises and deliveries and miles to go that evening before they get back home.

    I agree that this poem can be interpreted anyway that a person wants it. Poetry can have different meanings just depends on the reader, in my opinion. This poem is amazing and I, myself enjoy it. This is the way I would interpret this poem. What I believe Robert Frost was trying to tell us is even though there are obstacles or the time to give up is perfect, it not time to give up until you have achieved your dreams or goals in life. In Robert Frost’s second stanza of his poem he mentions a little pony probably was confused to why they stopped in the middle of the woods with no farmhouse near. In my thoughts, I thought of this little horse to be like one’s conscious. Thinking why are they stopping at a place where they are not destined to be or to go. In the poet’s third stanza, he also mentions that the horse shakes his bells to grab the attention of his master to see if stopping here was a mistake. The way I looked it as, is an individual’s conscious, is always on our back to do the right thing, to keep moving forward. Lastly, the last stanza of Robert Frost’s poem is describing how the woods is great but at the same dark and deep. Robert Frost tried to make it be that the woods or how I mentioned before, the thought of giving up seems as the most wonderful thing ever. Towards the end of the poem, he says, “But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.” Meaning, the narrator will still keep moving forward and to accomplish dreams, goals, or desires for their life before they “rest.” Thank you for taking my interpretation for consideration.
