In this poem, the speaker stops by the woods when it is snowing out in the evening. Then, goes to observe and enjoy the views of the lovely nature. Also, the speaker wants to stay to admire more, but needs to rest and has to leave. An example of repetition is that It says “and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.” (15-16 “Stopping by Woods”). It reveals long the person fell asleep for and to add a tired feeling when it becomes night time in the woods.
You’re cradled in a hammock with an engrossing read or maybe listening to your favorite song. There is not a single person in a five-mile radius of you, no one can disturb you. You have no responsibilities, no expectations, nothing but yourself and the comforting sounds of nature around you.

The symbols help her make clear that Chris is indeed taking refuge in a world of illusion, a world he finds better suited to the sensitive person that he is. Firstly, the miniature saddle that is mentioned in both the beginning and end of the story is a symbol of Chris’s need to escape reality.

The deceptively simple poem, The Tuft of flowers effectively uses nature to create an image that allows individuals to effectively shape their previous mental thoughts concerning life. The persona recognises the prior existence of another individual in the third stanza, “I looked for him behind an isle of trees; I listened for his whetstone on the breeze.” The evidential failure to locate another person inserts the grim idea of solitude, isolation and loneliness within the persona’s thought process. This is mutually reinforced by the persona’s interpretation of the situation “But he had gone his way, the grass all mown”, that every person must leave once they have completed the task that they are assigned to complete, creating an environment full of dismay and solitude for the next individual that is in the endless cycle. However, the tide begins to turn as “A leaping tongue of bloom the scythe had spared”, indicating that the persona comes to a realisation that the mower had allowed the beautiful piece of nature to stand out within the levelled scene. The beauty of the tuft of flowers takes a toll on the thought process of the persona as they begin to uncover that the mower has a distinct appreciation for nature.
