Brief Synopsis of “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening”
It is a cold winter’s night, the darkest night of the year, and the wind is blowing while the snow is falling. The narrator is riding through the woods with his horse. He finds himself on the land of a man who lives in the village and stops to look around. The narrator muses that his horse must think it odd that they’re stopping in the middle of the woods, and as if to answer, the horse shakes his harness bells. The narrator notes that the only other sound is the wind and snow. He is taken in by the lovely dark beauty of the woods, but he knows he can’t stay in the woods all night admiring them. He says that he has obligations, including more miles to travel, and promises to keep.
