This poem is interesting. What came to my understanding of the poem is that
the writer loves to see the man in the village as he crosses through the
woods, but he "has promises to keep," and "miles to go" before he sleeps.
So I believe the theme of this poem is that you mustn't stop what you are
set to do, and you must be dedicated, no matter what pleasures or obstacles
may lie on the way.

This poem can be interpreted many different ways. Many people, and I am
able to see it too, say that it is a poem of suicidal thoughts, and the
contemplation of killing oneself. When Frost says

"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."

It can be, and is in some cases, taken as a contemplation of suicide.
Though, to be brutally honest, I believe Frost was just illustrating the
wonders of the journey through a snowy wood. ( He does it beautifully, I
might add. )

There are four stanzas in the Robert Frost poem "Stopping by the Woods on a
Snowy Evening" not two. I find myself offended that you would compromise
Frost like that!!

although this poem was first published in 1923, i think that it was
actually written a lot earlier. When his wife, before they were married,
turned down his wedding proposal, frost was sure that she was seeing
someone else. i think that is were the first stanza came from. he went to
the Great Dismal Swamp because he was so depressed and i think that is why
he thought about killing himself.
