Poetry: Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

‘Stopping by woods on a snowy evening’ is one of the most famous poems by Robert Frost. It is an anecdotal poem, based on the conflict of human mind in choosing one thing between the beauty of the nature and fulfilling his duties as a person.

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   
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 soundโ€™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.
                                                                          – Robert Frost
