The poem "Stopping by the Wood on a Snowy Evening" has been written by Robert Frost. It tells the story of a man who is travelling to his hometown. When he reaches the woods, he is enchanted by its natural beauty. He wonders whose woods are these.  He knows the owner lives in the nearby village. His horse is thinking it strange to stop by the woods. There is no farmhouse in sight. His horse gives a shake to the harness bells. There is a frozen lake and snowflakes to be seen. Wind is passing through the trees. The woods are lovely, dark and deep. The traveller is bound by time. He has to walk on as life is not the name of stay. He has to do many chores to keep the life going on. The poet expresses that after the accomplishment of a lot of work, he can go to bed for sleep.
