Robert Lee Frost was one of the most renowned American poets. He won several accolades during his lifetime for his astounding work.
“Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” was published by him in 1923 as part of his New Hampshire Volume.
It’s one of his best work and it always resonates with me whenever I read! Hope you enjoy it too!:)
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.
In a gist, the poem describes how one must concentrate on fulfilling his promises and duties without being distracted by the pleasures of life. Here is the reference link to a more detailed analysis of the poem – https://www.sparknotes.com/poetry/frost/section10/
