Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

The poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost written in 1923 pictures a setting of a scene with wood and in a snowing evening that is hauntingly barren and pastoral. The poem is about a moment in nature whereby the author pauses for a moment in the wood admiring he beauty of snowy evening. The great works of Frost were seen as a gift and his poem stopping by the woods in a snowing evening is presented and viewed to be a musical poem with the application of great rhythm and having a direct touch that enhances the calmness and assuring nature of the poem (Heitman, 35). The main theme brought out in the poem is that of a person being able to concentrate fully on fulfilling their promise with the calmness in nature as they are not distracted by nature of life.

The analogy of the poem presents two varying messages that could be liked with the blues music whose rhythm would be sly and charming inspiring smiles on the audience even though their messages are sad and dread. The calm rhythm used by the author suggests on how everything was alright s the message of the words showed how everything was not alright. The development of this essay shows the major theme of the poem that is the central concentration of fulfilling promises and accomplish duties of life without distractions presented by the pleasures of life, thus showing the theme of duty and responsibility (Heitman, 35).
