Mysticism in Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening

The poet in Frost rises into mystic state while picturing the bewitching
beauty of the woods that responds to the senses of the eye and the ear and
transcends to the dark and deep world of imaginary falsification .
The apparent world is a world of temptation and it often leads the viewer
to the involvement and consumption .Most of us fall victim to the apparent
beauty or handsomeness , forgetting the purpose of life
that that remains in one's self-less activities of good deeds .
The dictate of conscience must be obeyed and in that
the greater -self persists us in continuing the profitless service to all
,-man and animal .
Frost certainly had the glimpse of the living soul and his true dwelling
was by its side .The subtle senses in man come out from within only when
non attachment with gross senses no longer are force-fully active . Hence
the crossing the bar between life and death the soul enjoys its blissful
rest .

Robert Frost , through his little-spanned poem Stopping By the Woods on
Snowy Evening, has done the marvel on human principle of deeds and romantic
fascination .The poem goes to a deeper level of human psychology .For
,temptation and feasting senses often cause our downfall .
We may enjoy the beauty of a girl , or nature , but not at the cost of
our work .

Frost, unfortunately, is contemplating suicide
The woods are a metaphor for a cemetery, the horse, is his hearse...

poem, lovely, but dark..

Woods on a Snowy Evening

Frost talks about seeing something from afar that intrigues him as if the
falling snow is the vehicle that conveys the thought he is promoting. The
deep dark woods on an evening speak more to the fullness of life in a
natural setting that is beset with the glory of a filling of wonder or
snow. He speaks to the owner being afar and not being able to appreciate
the beauty of his possession denotes the pleasures that people forego to
achieve a place in society. He speaks to the darkest evening of the year
and this pertains to a dark and devious day or night in his life and the
hardship of moving forward. It is easier to stop and stay than to move
forward and stay among the living.
The promises to keep are the commitments he has made to others that cannot
be thrown aside for the simple task of dying and staying where there is
comfort, beauty and a desire to be among the trees in the dark, deep woods
where the downy flakes cover the harsh ground with clean, fluffy flakes
that cover all ugliness that was once there. His thoughts wander as he sits
atop his stead thinking of the things he would rather do than to move
forward but the horse jingles his bells to awaked the rider to the need to
move forward rather than to be claimed by the cold and the land.
