I think this poem has a cold feeling. Almost like Frost is hidding or not
telling part of his story. He seems to have a journey to complete and he
wont stop at any cost, even if his horse is tired. He shows a lot of
dedication to whatever he needs to get done , and a lot of loyalty to
whoever it is being done for, even if it is for himself. He showes the
reader that its more than walking through the forest its a journey that
everyone goes through a journey called life.

This poem is about a man who is riding through the woods on a snowy
evening. He is tired and wants to rest, but he has a responsibility. This
man is very loyal. Although he has miles to go before he can sleep, he
decides not to take a rest in the woods because he knows that he has a
promise to keep.

In this poem, I feel that he is speaking of the attraction of the woods and
the responsibilities outside the woods. I also think he describes the
attraction to just watch the beauty of the woods and forget your troubles.

The poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost shows me
Frost's loyalty and accountability in that he wanted to stop to rest for
the night, but he knew the horse would struggle so he kept on. You should
always be loyal in life and keep your promises as Frost did in this poem.
This poem gave a perfect example of being loyal without actually stating it
in words.

The poem "stopping by woods on a snowy evening" reveals a sort of sadness
in Frost. The poem sends the message of peace and deep thought. I think he
is trying to say that everyone needs to stop and be alone once in a while.
Just to assess their own lives by themselves. He's trying to say
independence is a good thing.

This poem is Differnt. I don't know what he trying to say. He talks about
things of his time period that doesn't relate to our period. This piece of
literature is magnificent. His sentence structure is well done also.

This poem is different. The fact that Frost refers to something that he
never reveals what it is is a mystery. I think that that thing is for each
individual to fill in with his or her own feelings. Like never stop loving
or stop believing.

I'm not sure what some people are talking about on here. This poem reflects
the time in Frost's life when he had a great deal of depression. The reason
he speaks of woods and cold is because one of the most peaceful ways to die
is to freeze to death, obviously he is considering suicide by just falling
asleep on the coldest, darkest night of the year. But he realizes he has
important things to do before he passes.

does anyone know what is the promise that the man said he had to keep?

In this poem Frost tried to give us an immagine of the heaven on the
Earth.No sounds. Not many colours and the main one is white. Also the
feeling that i have while reading this poem are made of underpressure but
at the same time of chill.
The man on his way, which i belive is the author, would like to stay but he
has " promises to keep, and miles to go before i sleep". The last three
verses i think are a way to say that he is not ready yet to share the
heaven because he still have miles to walk on and promises to keep.
