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.

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.

Im using this poem for a school assignment and I think it's great. Its
really interesting and I think Robert Frost was a great poet. I can really
picture it altough we don't get much snow in Australia. It reminds me of
the kids TV show "Arthur". I don't know why. Great poem though. It really
intrigued me and stopped me in my tracks, leaving me to think about it. I
also like his poem on Fiare and Ice.

Man, this reminds me of my house. I love Robert Frost. He was a friend of
my grandfather. I have an autographed book of his

The dark cold woods symbolize the hardships in life, and the man who lives
there is enduring them. The poem states in the last stanza "I have a
promise to keep"(Frost 1)/ and the that is a metaphor for our
repsonisbilities in life and "And mile to before I sleep"(Frost 1)/ is
stated in the last 2 lines if the poem and it means to stay repsonsible and
follow through with your promises, even when it is dark.

In this poem Frost is describing a cold evening in the woods. I think he is
on his way to do something important, like a promise he intends to keep,
because he says, "But I have promises to keeps, and miles to go before I
sleep, and miles to go before I sleep". I also think he is worried about
what may lie ahead of him because he is taking the time to clear his mind
by watching the snow fall in the woods.

I think that this comment shows how we should stop and take in the good
things in life but not to be lazy in it and to keep to our
responsibilities.
