1. A forest, according to Webster's New World Dictionary, is "a thick growth of trees and underbrush covering an extensive tract of land." A wood, on the other hand, is defined as "a thick grove of trees" in the same dictionary.

2,3. The speaker of Frost's poem stops by the woods because the snow falling against the dark night sky is so beautiful. The speaker has people to see and places to be, but nevertheless, he is so taken.

4. The narrator knows the owner of the woods and even where he lives. He is a bit relaxed thinking that the owner of the woods lives in the village and so he won't see the narrator stopping here. Therefore he can continue watching the natural beauty of his snow-covered woods. “My little horse must think it queer.

5. The horse is shaking his harness bells to ask if stopping is a mistake. This poem describes a person that is driving a horse-drawn carriage on a snowy evening through some woods.

6. Besides the sound of harness bells, the only other sound that the rider is that of the smooth flow of the wind giving a slight sense of it sweeping the air; as well as the sound of falling snow flakes.

7. In his poem “Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening”, Robert Frost has used the phrase 'the darkest evening of the year' in the second stanza. This is because the poem is set on the winter months. ... Because during winters the days are shorter while the nights are longer and darker as well.

8. In this poem, the speaker stands by the woods and is enchanted by the beauty of nature. The shaking of the harness bells of his horse (symbolizing society) and the sound of the wind (symbolizing his inner voice) remind him that he cannot give in to irresponsible indulgence by enjoying the sensual pleasures of nature.

10. By the phrase 'darkest evening of the year', the poet, Snowy Evening mentions the darkest night of the year that falls on 21st or 22nd of the month of December. That is the longest night of the year. ... By this phrase, the poet can also mean that the speaker had had bad time on those nights or that he was depressed.

11. A quatrain is a stanza in a poem that has exactly four lines. Some quatrains comprise entire poems, while others are part of a larger structure. Quatrains usually use some form of rhyme scheme, especially the following forms: AAAA, AABB, ABAB, and ABBA.

Hope it helps.......
