Description

Robert Frost’s first book was not published until he was 40, however, he went on to receive a record four Pulitzer Prizes and became the most famous poet of his time.  He investigated human contacts with the natural world that served as metaphors of the human condition.  He was not a proponent of free verse which he regarded as less than ideal, like playing tennis without a net.  His work was often associated with rural life in New England and he used his command of colloquial speech in his works as it was spoken.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village, though;

He will not see me stopping here

To watch his woods fill up with snow.

 

My little horse must think it queer

To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.

 

He gives his harness bells a shake

To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other sounds the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake.

 

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.
