Analyzing 20th Century Poetry
By Carl Sandburg
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
By Robert Frost
Stopping by woods on a snowy evening
whose woods these are I think I know
his house is in the village though;
he will not see me stopping here
to watch his woods fill up with snow,

My little horse mist think it queer
to stop without a farmhouse near
between the woods and frozen lake
the darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
to ask if there is some mistake
the only other sound's the sweep
of easy wind and downy flake.

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.
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
When the depression hit everyone was in a state of confusion because everything had been going so well. Just like fog, confusion creeps in quietly and without warning. The author alludes to a very true comparison of the fog or confusion of one's mind to the fog that the forecast calls for.
Everyone was in the same state of confusion. It lingered for quite a while. Then when FDR took office and started to make changes that were working, just like that the fog was gone.
Everything was so busy that people didn't have time to stop and admire the beautiful things in nature. They were too caught up in the things happening in the cities, the parties, the music, the culture surrounding them. They didn't take the time to appreciate nature.
