I need to analyse the poem Stopping by woods on a snowy evening, by Robert Frost.
I understand what it talks about but I don't know what it means.
Spacially when he says:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
and miles to go before I sleep
and Miles to go before I sleep

I need to analyse the poem Stopping by woods on a snowy evening, by Robert Frost.
I understand what it talks about but I don't know what it means.
Spacially when he says:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep [and I'd love to explore them]
But I have promises to keep [I have things that I must do]
and miles to go before I sleep [This may refer to actual distances to be covered/walked or it could be figurative meaning lots to do]
and Miles to go before I sleep

I've never actually read it myself, so these are just guesses from the available context.
