    • POEM: Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening by Robert Frost (8/21/2010 10:13:00 PM)

      I looked this poem up tonight due to my wife remembering part of it from school many years ago. It is the first time I have ever read it and I love it.

      To me this sounds like a local traveler that has taken a short break and realizes the beauty of what he sees, yet understands his responsibilities.

      There is the beauty in the natural silence of the woods, the mesmerizing falling of the snow as it blankets over everything, and the ease of the wind. (All of which sound so inviting to me.)

      During his break he is tempted to stay and enjoy the woods and the snow but he understands that he has made promises which he needs to keep before he rests.

      Basically I think it is saying to take time to stop and enjoy life, but not to the extent that it keeps you from keeping your promises. (Take time to smell the roses, but don’t dilly dally around.)

      I guess that is the beauty of a well written poem, it can speak to many different people and provide so much to each of them based upon what is happing to them at the time and upon their personalities.
