    • POEM: Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening by Robert Frost (11/22/2010 7:49:00 AM)

      Well, i've read and read this poem over and over again. Everytime feels like the first, for it trigers different emotional aspirations; different than those i had experienced when reading it for the very first time as a university pupil.
      I've even taken the time to read some of the comments made by other people who have done the same. To me it feels like the darkest night of the year is the route towards the end of one's life.
      The beauty that surrounds the man on the horse is the beauty of life that each and every one of us is bound to experience throughout the course of life.
      Sleep is traditionally related and even refered to as the 'brother' of death in early romantic poets; in English poetry. This is rather evident here, for the poet mentions he has a long way to travel before he goes to sleep.
      The profound imagery of the poem suggests that the beauty without meets the beauty within the man. As part of nature we all might stop and experience such magnificent moments. The falling of rain, the last remaining light in the horizon right before the sunset, to mention but a few.
      The fact that the man travels alone is yet another point that supports the desolate trip through life tha each of us embarks on.
      Finally, as regards to the 1st half of the last stanza of the poem: 'the woods are lovely.....to keep' i believe is indicative of the ongoing procedures in the course of life. For even in the darkest hours of one's living there is evident need to move on; whatever direction-just the same!
      The sense of the evergoing and merciless time that surpasses all that is understandible and humaine.
      Just wanted to share these thoughts with you.....should anyone read the comment, please respond. Thank you
