This poem was found on Jawaharlal Nehru's (ex Prime Ministero of India)
table just after his death. Probably he was reading the poem the previous
day. Maybe he was pondering over the 'promises he had keep'

Stoppinh by Woods on a Snowy Evening is one of Robert Frost poems I ever
loved. Especially the last four lines gives us a courage to face the coming
ordeals in life without being coward and forgetting the thought of ending
one's life.
I try to skip through these lines during the desperate moments in my life.
Poet says suicide is not the only remedy towards depression.
He conveys us to look into the world with an optimistic vision.

This poem has always given me the vizualation of an old man who has lived
his life and is ready to die. As he readies himself for transition he sees
that he still has more to achieve and must continue. This is a poem
depicting the temporary victory of life over death.

nothing can be made without efforts and hardwork . this poem indicates the
tale of horse which remind his master that he has a lot of work (to reach
to his destination) by his bells(horse bells) . one should follow the
message given in the poem that "donot stop till u reach ur goal" .

Robert Frost's poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening critically
examines the rationality of human beings. He postulates that the
intelligence of animals is far higher than that of the human beings.

The speaker stops by a wood mainly for quenching his pleasure. In a sense
there is a suspension of rationality and the speaker is overwhelmed by the
beauty. He forgets time and space in which he is. It is only after the
horse's bell the speaker realizes the responsibility. The poem is thus a
valorization to animal's rationality.

Wow! Suicide? Really? I've always loved this poem and that's NEVER
occurred to me! This poems always made me feel very happy. I've always
kind of thought it was about Santa Clause...

This poem written by Robert Frost is just nice. Its like 'The Road Not
Taken'. For me, Robert Frost is the best poet I know. His poem is simple
and touching. And he adds in rhymes and rhythms to spice it up. Just nice.

the last 3 lines are so inspiring. they tell that we have responsibility in
life and we shouldnt expect luxury all the time

Life is like coming in too late for a film,
Trying to find out what happened,
without bothering a lot of people with a lot of questions,
And then being suddenly called away
before you know how the film ends.
