As a child of the 60 I best remember the line Miles to go before I sleep
and have oftened wondered who this man might be ho had miles to go before
he could sleep. I used to think of a doctor or clergyman but my 26 year old
daughter,who teaches English gave me the best answer St Nicholas or Santa
Clause however you chose ro call him.

im a korean and i like this poem. its a very nice poem..this site helped me
with my analization of the poem. i think the persona is traveling through
the woods, which is his life journey and stops for a moment to reflect or
to think about his life. and after all this, he realizes that he will
someday die. i think this poem telling to stop the busy and tiring life
just for a while and reflect if one is enjoying it. to flashback and review
his life.

hi! i am a teenager from the phils. i have read thru the comments on
frost's peom on this site and i was reminded of how deep the meaning of the
poem was. honestly, i read the poem a lot of times but i never thought that
one day it would struck me this hard.

you see the peom speaks a lot on the obligations we have to do,
expectations to meet and works yet to be done but as the poem implies, it
will never hurt to unwine and have fun for awhile.

I first memorized and recited this poem 32 years ago, while I was a 5th
grade student at St. Philip of Neri, in Bronx,NY. It has always been one
of my favorites...

... snow is symbolic to death and so is sleep this poew is about a man and
his horse walking through a semi-familiar wooded area about to pass...

the last line of the poem.....is very inspiring atleast for me...it tells u
that what ever may be the situation jus keep walking...the essence of the
poem lies in the last four lines.....
"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."
