Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening



The poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost was first published in 1923.  A traveler stops on a snowy evening to look at the woods he is passing.  He watches the woods fill with snow before leaving because he has “promises to keep.”  Woods, representing life’s wildness, is a pervasive image in much of Frost's poetry.
