He wants to lay down and sleep, but he still has things he must accomplish.
He is too attached to let go and lay down his head... Yet he's stopped in
this wood on the darkest eve of the year. The little horse is worried. They
are stopped.

This poem never really made much sense to me until I heard it as composed
by Eric Whitacre. It was really hard to connect with the emotion; now I
find it hard not to.

I am not sure in specific what he is contemplating, wether it be suicide,
affair, crime, ect. But my opinion on this, is that he is faced with the
easy way out. But he knows his responsibility and must go on. I find it
absolutely beautiful and optimistic, saying that it will get better and
must find happiness.

This poem makes me feel cold. I also feel sad. It is about cows in a forest
and they need some hay. They want to go to sleep in a warm barn but the
man on the horse wants to go to the village to drink some coffee. He will
need to go many miles and then come back to put the cows to bed.

i love this poem, it is one of my favourite. i agree with the comments that
this is about life and the journey we have to take, it speaks to the
resilience in mankind and the hopes and dreams we must strive for without
quitting.i think frost has done a great job of describing this scene. the
imageries are profound.
