Summary of the Poem for Average Students

This beautiful poem is written by Robert Frost. It tells us about a man who was on the way to his home. One winter evening, the narrator stops his sleigh to watch the snow falling in the woods. At first, he worries that the owner of the property will be upset by the presence. Then he remembers that the owner lives in the village and he is free to enjoy the beauty of the falling snow.

The sleigh horse is confused by the master’s behaviour. His farmhouse is far away. The horse shakes his harness bells in impatience. After enjoying the scene of the snow falling, the narrator reluctantly continues on his way. He remembers that he has to accomplish many miles before going to sleep.
